A few days ago my boyfriend fingered me and we ALMOST had sex. He had the condom on and he tried to go inside but got scared and ended up only touching the outside of me WITH the condom ON. I am on a low dose birth control and ever since then I have been bleeding and my period isn't due for another 2 weeks. Is there any way I could be pregnant?

Hi soulsurfer, sorry about this post going unanswered for a couple of days! If the condom did not slip or break during contact, you can assume that it was effective, and if you have been taking your birth control properly this cycle, then you can also assume that was at its full effectiveness too. Here's an article about the effectiveness of various contraception combinations:
The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method

If you did not have any issues with the condoms and you took your pill properly, then you can be sure that a pregnancy is very unlikely in this situation, and not something to worry about for this one time. Of course, you can always take a pregnancy test in a couple of weeks if you would like more reassurance.
