If I have sex without a condom, am I at risk of pregnancy having taken all of the active pills?

How long have you been on the pill? If this is your first or second month, you could get pregnant. The pill takes time to adjust your body. Usually during the first couple months it is recommended to use mother birth control method to be safe. Once your body has adjusted and you have not missed any pills during the month it will be safe.
Just remember that no birth control is 100% effective and there is always the possibility to get pregnant. Plan accordingly and you will be fine.

It may take a few days of inactive pills before you start your period. It averages for most women to occur on the 3rd or 4th day of inactives. If you have finished one full cycle of pills then you should be protected against pregnancy even during inactive pills. After the first month, condoms are for preventing STDs and for back up if you miss a pill. If you are taking the pills correctly, have taken them for a full cycle without any misses and you are in a manogamous relationship then you can stop using condoms if you wish. You will be protected from pregnancy. Like the previous poster mentions, no pill is 100% effective but birth control pills, when taken correctly, are about 99% effective.
