Well, I'm sure the lot of you get twenty million "OMG, does this mean I'm preggers?!" questions daily, so I'm sorry to be so unoriginal
But, I was wondering, I'm on birthcontrol (pill) and have been for awhile now. When I first began it, my boyfriend and I used backup (condoms), but, within the last couple months, we haven't even been using those. Usually, though, before he is about to ejaculate, he pulls out. I'm not sure how much that exactly lowers the risk, but....anyhow. Two days ago we were having sex and, for the first time, he ejaculated inside of me. Does this heighten the risk of pregnancy or should I still be "okay" due to being on the pill?
Thanks in advance

If you're taking the pill correctly (around the same time every day, not missing or skipping pills, etc), you have a very low risk of pregnancy.
If you do have continuing pregnancy worries while on the Pill and need peace of mind, you can take a pregnancy test two weeks after your last risk and have it be accurate. The hormones in the Pill don't interfere with testing for pregnancy.
You've got about a three-hour window in which to take your pills and still consider it "at the same time". Taking it at 6 or 7 when you normally take it at 5 should be fine.
