Me and my boyfriend had sex all weekend since Friday night, without a condom at first but when we got into it he would put a condom on then cum in the condom not in me. But I'm on the Nortrel bithcontrol pill and I take it right every single day and haven't missed a pill. This week is the week I'm suppose to get my period, but it hasn't came yet.. and I've only been on birthcontrol for 2 months. Now my boyfriend is scared that I'm pregnant. What are the real chances of me being pregnant? low? I went and got the plan b pill last night.. so would it still be possible?

Two months is a totally acceptable period of time to be using the pill when it comes to getting it's full effectiveness, so long as you have been taking your pills probably. And there is no need for Plan B when using a combined oral contraceptive correctly, and for this long. Were you using your pills properly?

The risk we'd consider for something like this is more about STIs than pregnancy. But if your boyfriend wants more pregnancy protection that the pill offers you -- which is a great deal -- AND to help reduce STI risks, what he can do with condoms is to use THOSE properly, which means wearing them for all contact, not just some.
