So my boyfriend and I had sex today, both of our first time. We did not use a condom, he was only inside for about 15-20 seconds as we were just trying to get the feel of it, not really "enjoy it" if that makes sense. I am on the pill and I do take it everyday, at around the same time (not exactly), I just got off my period about two days ago (and I typically do not ovulate until day 14, typical for most girls) and he did not ejaculate in me, he didn't even after he pulled out. I know about pre-***, so I guess that would be my only concern really. What are the odds of me getting pregnant from that? I'm just kind of paranoid. I have anxiety issues and I'm worrying myself sick over this. My stomach hurts but I think it's just stress, it's too early for that to be a sign of pregnancy, right?

If you take the pill as directed (same time every day, not doing anything that might compromise its effectiveness), you can rely on it for the protection it offers. With perfect use, the pill can be up to 99% effective.

If you are taking the pill as directed, you also do not ovulate, as one of the ways in which the pill works is via preventing ovulation.

Do also keep in mind that the pill does not protect you from STIs, so unless you and your partner have both been tested, you will want to use condoms until you hvae. And, bonus: you'll be using two methods of protection, which is as safe as you can get when engaging in intercourse.
