I have been on Birth Control for about a month now and had just unprotected sex the other night, and although he pulled out is there any risk of pregnancy? thanks

Only advocates and sexperts are allowed to resond to questions here ... Please read this thread fore more info.

As for the question at hand ... There is always a risk for pregnancy when there's intercourse involved.

Did you wait one entire cycle (have you had your period since you started the pill?)? If yes, then your risk is probably minimal.

If no, then you could have a higher risk. You can wait 10 days and take a pregnancy test, and if it's negative, you can take a second test 10-14 days later.

Here are some articles you might wanna take a look at;
Safer Sex Primer
What's the Risk?

Do keep in mind that you're also at risk for STD transmission when you're not using a barrior (condoms and such) method of birth control. If you and your partner have not been tested twice, each w/i six months of each other, i'd suggest you do so.
