So... i've been taking my bcp's for something about 5 cicles now... never missed a pill, never taken it more than 4hours late (in one year is this considered perfect? )
My question is: even I'm being on the pill... when I'm aroused i get REALLY wet... this compromise in some kind my bcp "safety"? The fact that i get really wet means that if something which isn't supposed to (read: sperms) gets in it will be easier to something goes wrong?
Thank you ever since,

Hi StarrDust. How much vaginal lubrication you produce has no effect on the pill's effectiveness. Also, perfect use can only really be attained in a laboratory setting, but it sounds like you're as close to perfect as it can get! So for you the pill would definitely be around the highest effectiveness. We have a couple of really great articles about the pill that really go into detail about how the pill works, I suggest checking them out:
Combined Oral Contraceptives (The Pill)
Three questions about taking the birth control pill (and plenty of answers)
How do birth control pills really work, even during the placebo period?
