Are you still protected from pregnancy even though you have breakthrough bleeding 4 days before placebo birth control pills?

In brief: Normally

This can happen for no particular reason and protection is unaffected.
If however it occurred because you have been erratic about taking your pills or you have been on other medications, particularly antibiotics, then effectiveness may be reduced.
