lets say my boyfriend and I have sex and the condom slips but he's sure that none of it got inside me. I'm on BC but I started my sugar pills today. what are the chances of me getting pregnant?

If you've been taking the pills as directed (same time every day, no late or missed pills), you are protected at all times, including the withdrawal week. So, you don't need to worry about the condom-failure, as the pill still protects you.
