I've been on birth control for about 2 years, and I can confidently say I'm really good about taking it at the same time every night.
Tonight, however, my boyfriend and I had sex without a condom initially, and put one on when he was ready to ejaculate.
When we were done, I noticed some cum at the base of his shaft dripping out of the condom. Of course, at this point he had gotten soft. But, he said he should have wiped himself off before putting on the condom because it's possible it could have caused the condom to slip around. (this is probably so confusing but i'm trying my best here to explain...) SO! I'm also going into my 4th week of my cycle-not that it makes much of a difference, i don't track my symptoms- so i'm just trying to evaluate the pregnancy risk here and determine if i need to back-up my back-up method with EC.
anyyyyyy thoughts and answers would be greatly appreciated because i'm just lost.

If you have been taking the pill at the same time every day, you have absolutely no reason to suspect pregnancy. The pill is incredibly safe if taken as directed, and it sounds like you've been a perfect pill user.

So, no, you absolutely do not need to use EC.

(Also? Know that, when you are on the pill, you do not ovulate, so there is no time in your 'cycle' that is more or less risky than any other. You're always protected equally.)
