Can i get pregnant while having unprotected sex during my "fertile window", even though i'm taking the birth control pill @ the same time every day?

Yes: Perfect use of birth control pills have a failure rate of 3% (pregnancy rate), That is low, but no contraceptive method is perfect. Perfect use for combined oral contraceptives (estradiol and a progestin) means taking 1 pill every day without missing doses.
