Hi, I'm on my first month of using the BC pill and have taken each pill on time (no missed/late pills) and I am on my 2nd day of the pill free week.
On the first day of the pill free week, when my boyfriend pulled out ,the condom slipped off and a there was some spillage on the sheets.

I understand the body takes a few weeks to adjust to the hormones but given that I have taken all the pills correctly on my first month of usage, logically would there by a any reason to worry about potential pregnancy risks due to this ?

Nope- to be on the safe side, we recommend using a secondary form of protection (a male condom, in your case) during the first active pill cycle, but by your placebo week, the pills have already done their duties, so to speak.

With that in mind, whether his ejaculate made contact with your vulva or not, there's not a substantial risk present.

Thank you very much for the response. As scarleteen recommendeds,we did use condoms all through the month when I was on the pill just in case
