Me and my bf had sex four days after my period, we used a condom, correctly. He pulled out before he ejaculated. So i guess my question is, what is the risk of pregnancy?

Very, very small.

You're describing using both a condom and withdrawal. We can't tell you the exact chance for this one time because the figures we have don't work that way. However, over a whole year - using the same explanation I gave you before about what these figures mean - condoms and withdrawal are 99.92% effective with perfect use, and 95.95% effective in typical use.

The kyriarchy usually assumes that I am the kind of woman of whom it would approve. I have a peculiar kind of fun showing it just how much I am not.

So would the same percentage of effectiveness be the same if he were to have ejaculated in my vagina?

No, because then you would not be using withdrawal. If you're asking about intercourse with ejaculation into a condom while inside the vagina, that's using a condom as a method of contraception. Over a year, condoms are 98% effective in perfect use, and 85% effective in typical use.

If you're asking about ejaculation directly into the vagina, without a condom and without any other method of contraception, that's highly likely to result in pregnancy within a year.
