My boyfriend and I were fooling around and ended up having sex... kinda. He pulled out before he came. I know that pre-ejac has semen in it and can get me pregnant, but I'm on birth control, and my period ended Saturday (2 days ago). Should I be freaking out?
i'm already going to buy a pregnancy test tomorrow, just in case, but i wanted to know if i should be ready for a mental breakdown.
I tried to read the flow chart, but there's only a section on just condoms, not just bc. soo... i thought it would be better to ask

If you are taking your brith control correctly, then you don't have much of a pregnancy risk. However, you do have an STI risk since you didn't use a condom, so both you and your partner should go get tested.

My partner and i are singular and recently lost our virginities with one another. I'm also tested for stis yearly. Is there a large chance of a problem?
My friend just told me that my birth control may not be strong enough to prevent me from becoming pregnant? Is this a myth, or are they all the same?

Different pills have different levels of hormones. This is because all women are different--some need more, some need less. All, however, should be effective in preventing pregnancy if taken correctly.

For reference, which pill are you on?
