My boyfriend and I are always save about our sex. I am on birth control and we always use a condom.
However, this weekend, I forgot to take one pill. My period is supposed to be starting this week.
He and I did have sex this weekend, using a condom of course.
Should I be worried about a possible pregnancy?

If the condom was used correctly and didn't break, then you shouldn't have any pregnancy worries.

Condoms are about 99% effective when used correctly, plus your birth control effectiveness doesn't drop to zero after missing one pill - so you should be fine.
