My girlfriend has been on the pill for 17 days as of today, and we just had unprotected sex and i ejaculated in her. Could she be pregnant ?

Most companies that manufacture oral contraceptives give a minimum of seven days of active pill taking before the female can consider herself protected, and therefore have unprotected sex. If your girlfriend has been on them longer and has been taking them regularly, not missing days, etc, than you should be fine.
