I'm on OrthoTriCyclenLo, but I recently used two pill packs one right after the other (I did this on a recommendation from a friend who uses the same pill, who did it on a recommendation from her doctor). This stopped me from having a withdrawal bleed, but because of the three different hormones I don't know if I'm still protected (once again, trusting my friend's doctor). My boyfriend and I use condoms anyway, so it doesn't matter that much. Anyway, I'm really writing because this morning when we were having sex, he pulled out after about half an hour and we realised the condom was on inside out. The only reason we could tell is because we use those knobbly condoms and the dots were on the inside. Anyway, we figure it must have come rolled the wrong way from the factory because I had no trouble putting it on, and I'm pretty sure I did it correctly. So he just pulled the condom off and I put a new one on, and away we went. He actually didn't come at all today, but I was wondering how concerned we should be about the risk of pregnancy from the first condom - it didn't look broken or anything. Anyway, because of my potential pill failure and then the whole condom debacle, wanted to make sure I don't need to be hunting down some EC ASAP.
As long as the condom didn't break or come off, you can assume it did it's job. Plus, you'd still have protection from your pill and (it sounds like) withdrawl, since you said he did not ejaculate.
If you have questions about the effects of taking two pill packs back to back, I would talk to your doctor about them. I would also recommend that, in the future, you run any changes to your pill taking routine by your doctor, just to make sure they don't have concerns or considerations they need to mention to you about doing so.
