Just wondering...... how likely is it to become pregnant while on birth control and your partner is pulling out every time.... I've only had sex once since my last period.... and he pulled out and I've been regular with my pill.... pregnant?

Pulling out before ejaculation (the "withdrawal method") is not in any way a reliable method of contraception, since pre-ejaculate can contain sperm.

If you are taking the birth control pill consistently and correctly, your risk of pregnancy is very low, whether he "withdraws" or not.

However, if you're not using condoms, you do have an STD/STI risk to consider.
