On the What's the risk flow chart theres no thing for on birth control but not using a condom with no ejaculation/or with ejaculation. I know the risk is really low but some people still freak out and it would be nice to have on there.

I can consider adding that, however, here's the thing: contraceptives differ a good deal in their effectiveness, especially with something like the pill, where there is no telling how well a user is taking it on schedule, if they've had medication conflicts (such as antibiotics), the works. So, it'll be a little bit for me to even figure out how to work that, or if that's even essential/redundant. In the interim , you can look at the effectiveness ratings for all other kinds of birth control, sans condom, in the Margaret Sanger's Disneyland article. They're all right there.

In other words, you're talking about a whole new page or far more, since the pill isn't the only other method of birth control. And to boot, we just don't advise using the pill alone, period.
