My girlfriend has been taking her BC everyday at the same time give or take a few hours for about a month and a half, we have been both tested and we are both "clean". We usally have sex with a condom but this time we didn't and will continue not to. Should we be worried about anything as far as pregnacy goes or in general should she be fine as long as she keeps taking it reguraly. thank you

The BC pill is 99% effective (and maybe even a bit more than that) when taken correctly, so there should be minimal pregnancy risk.

Yep, the pill protects you from pregnancy during your placebo week as well as during your active pills.

Do note you may want to think about schedualing a full STI screen (for both of you) in about a month if you aren't uptodate on those.
