I started my last period on the 19th of june and the pill on the 24th. I take it everyday same time, but on the 6th day when i was having sex the condom came off. I got plan b the next morning (10 hours later), and have continued taking my regular pill (haven't missed any). I haven't ovulated yet, and at the time I would've ovulated I have been on the pill for about 10 days. Can someone tell me how high of a risk for pregnancy i have. If i had been on the pill for 10 days before ovulating would it have stopped it? I'll appreciate any help!

If you're taking a combination pill, one of the ways it works is by preventing ovulation. Most combination pills will be at full effectiveness around a week after starting them, although we do recommend that folks use a backup method for at least the first month. There's no way we can know exactly how effective your pill was on day 6, or exactly when it will start inhibiting ovulation, but since you took Plan B so soon after the risk, you're pretty well covered here.
If you like, you can take a pregnancy test after waiting at least 14 days since the risk incident to confirm that the pill/Plan B combo was effective.
