So, basically you're talking about having combined condoms with withdrawal and the birth control pill, and with the condom having failed and not taking your pills properly?

That given, there certainly is a risk, but I'd say it's moderate at most, not high. Even just having used withdrawal perfectly alone only presents a 4% risk.
