I know that I probably shouldnt be freaking out, but i am...what is the possibility of pregnancy after having unprotected vaginal sex when the male did not ejaculate inside the female, but some seminal fluid may have come in contact with her outer vaginal area and the female has been taking birth control properly for atleast several months, but it was on the 14th day of her cycle?

If you've been taking the birth control pill consistently and correctly for several months, the pregnancy risk is minimal.

It doesn't matter what day of your cycle it is - the pill will be preventing ovulation.

However, unprotected sex does give you a potential STI risk.

minimal as in 1 in 100 or minimal as in virtually no chance? im the guy by the way. Also, does it matter if the form of birth control she takes is more for regulating her period than for contraception?

Minimal as in pretty much no chance - the pill is over 99% effective when taken correctly. If you're not comfortable with that, then backing up with condoms is always a smart move. (And we recommend them anyways to prevent possible STI risks.)
