Hey there everyone. Recently my girlfriend and I have begun having sex, and I was just curious about the risk of pregnancy with our birth control methods. She is on the birth control shot. Depo Provera I believe. She is about to get her second shot in August. I also use condoms when we have sex. This is also probably irrelevant, but all but one time I pulled out, even when using the condom. I just wanted to know what kind of risk of pregnancy we would have. She doesn't worry about it, she even wants me to not use a condom. But obviously, I worry too much for that. Thanks in advance everyone!

We have a piece which gives the estimated effectiveness rates of any two combined methods, including these two, right here: The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method
