I feel like I already know the answer to this question, but I just need to be reassured.

I've been on BC for years now and I take it at the correct time always, I've only missed a pill once in 3 years.

I was on antibiotics for a while [july 11-13 for the first round and july 20-29 the second round] due to a UTI, so my boyfriend and I used condoms when we had sex. The first time [july 13], we used a condom the whole time and when he came, he pulled out. However, he took off the condom and came on my stomach and slightly close to my vagina. The second time [july 24]he came into the condom.

I'm supposed to get my period tomorrow, and I've been cramping today. I honestly have no symptoms of pregnancy [not that they would even start to appear now], but for some reason I feel very anxious. I usually get my periods the Wednesday of my placebo week, but a few times it's happened on a Tuesday. I guess I'm just nervous that it won't come tomorrow.

My question in all this is, was there a real risk? or am I just being anxious for no reason?

Your stomach is pretty far from your vaginal opening, so unless your partner came someone on your vulva -- the mons, where your pubic hair is, for instance -- it sounds like your risk would be very low here, if not lower than usual if you don't usually use condoms with your pill.

Antibiotics for UTIs are usually a variety not known to intefere with the pill at all.

well he did end up coming a little bit near my vulva, and I wiped it off immediately but it still worried me.

Thanks for the quick response!
