im on birth control and i just changed the time that i take it about a month ago from 6 in the morning to 1130. me and my boyfriend usually use a condom when we have sex as well as me being on birth control but quite a few times this month we havent used a condom and he hasnt came inside of me but there was some pre-cum. im just wondering what my chances of being pregnant are because i should get my period today or tomorrow and is there any other way besides missing your period that you can tell if ur pregnant?? like warning signs or somting?? also is it ok to have sex without a condom when your on birth control or is it risky???

the Pill is very effective at preventing pregnancy. if you have taken it every day at bout the same time for a month, you have a very, very, very low risk of pregnancy.

however, you DO have an STD risk. if you and your partner have not been monogamous for at least a year AND have not had two clear STD screens, 6 months apart, then you are at risk for an STD and need a full screening.

and the only sure symptom of pregnancy is if you have a baby in 9 months.

barring that (it takes a long time, can be uncomfortable), a pregnancy test is the best way to know. if you miss your period (and again, you have a low risk of pregnancy, hon), take one pregnancy test, then if it's negative, take a nother one in a week. if THAT's negative, you are very likely not pregnant.
