Welcome to scarleteen. I'm glad you figured out how to post a new topic, but please, keep the duplicate posting to a minimum.
If you have taken your pills correctly for the last few months, that will protect you to the best of the ability of the pill. It's supposed to protect you from pregnancy when slip-ups happen.
But, you have had an STD risk. Have you and your partner been tested in the last six months? Are you both clean? Perhaps you should call Planned Parenthood anyway, and get an STD check. Bring your partner and make it a "safer sex" date.
Oopsie, i answered your question in the other topic before I noticed this one, my bad!
Welcome, again, and I hate to be finicky, but so you know for the future:
