Yesterday afternoon, my boyfriend and I had sex and after he pulled out, the condom wasn't on him anymore. It had come off inside me so I had to pull it out. There was some semen in it and some had dripped out of me. I've been on the birth control patch for about 2 months now and I was also on the end of my period yesterday. Does this mean I shouldn't worry about getting pregnant or should I get some emergency contraception just to be safe? Thank you.

If you're using the patch correctly and consistently, then your risk of pregnancy is very low.

However, you do have an STD/STI risk, so you should both think about getting screened.
