Hello, I'm new here. Anyway, here's the issue. I've been on the pill for more than a year now and last night was the firs time my boyfriend and I had sex during my withdrawl bleed. We've been together for 4 years and are each others first and only partners. Anyway, he really wanted to last night so we went ahead and did it. He wore a condom like always as extra precaution, but as he put it on he did with the wrong side so he had to turn it inside out and put it on again. I'm sure there had to be some pre cum there somewhere but we were in the heat of the moment so neither of us really thought about it until later. I'm afraid there could be some risk because of this even though I take the pill everyday and have never missed one, since this had never happened before and I have never done it during the withdrawl bleed I have no idea if there's any risk. Help!

You can relax! I do not see any real risks here since you have been one the pill steadily. Also, just so you know, pre-ejaculate does not normally contain sperm; unless he had ejaculated recently and there were some sperm remaining in his urethra.
Only if he had ejaculated before and not pee... but other than that.. I don't see pg risk. If you stress.. u can cause urself symptoms, so don't worry. And if you want to be on the safe side... take a pregnancy test the day u miss ur period. "If" u miss it. I doubt you may be pregnant though since you both are being careful.. but its understandable that u are worried since both of u are each others first sexual partner.

The key thing here is you have been steadily on the pill; so I still do not see a viable risk. Even if there were some sperm present, the amount would be so small that the risks would be extremely low. If he did urinate prior to intercourse, then that should have flushed out any remaining sperm cells.
