I'm a close to perfect user of the birth control pill and my boyfriend always uses a condom. I was just wondering that if we had sex twice in a night, what would be the chance that I could be pregnant? Both times a condom was used and I took my pill that night. I'm supposed to start my period next week but I kind of want the peace of mind.

Having sex twice in a night doesn't ultimately pose a higher pregnancy risk if you're using the pill and the condoms both times.

And the pill and the condom combined provide a very high level of pregnancy protection.

Pregnancy is highly unlikely when using both those methods, so I would rarely expect to see someone who earnestly used both correctly become pregnant.
