I'm extremely anxious about falling pregnant. However, I've been on the combined 21-day birth control pill for nearly 4 months, so I know my chances are very slim, but I cannot seem to shake the anxiety. It's really getting me down. I was wondering if you have any advice on how to stop worrying so much and how to be able to trust my birth control? my boyfriend has never ejaculated inside of me, so my only worry is pre-ejaculate, but I'm extremely worried incase my pill won't cover me from that.
During my previous 7 day pill break I got my period as normal like usual and during this current month we have only had sex ONCE without a condom using the pull out method, which he urinated before hand and pulled out long before he was even close to finishing, but apart from that, any other time we had sex during this month we did use a condom, so would have my pill covered me that one time? Even from any pre-ejaculate? YES I know pulling out isn't a good form of birth control you don't have to remind me!
I have 2 pills left of this month's pack so I haven't missed one or taken any late, but i know I won't be able to settle until I get my period. I take my pill every day at the same time, and have never missed one ever since I've started it, I have also never took any medications or anything that could affect my pill.
Please I'm really worried and I just want to know what are my chances of being pregnant? I just need reassurance, no rude comments please.

If you take your birth control regularly you have nothing to fear except for STI's and you have that covered with condoms. Given that your birth control is 99% - 99.5% effective your chances of conceiving are so incredibly small that most wouldn't even consider it as an issue.
NOTHING to worry about at all.
Angel; Stephan has answered you already, I was just going to say you are doing everything perfect and you are very well informed with the use and also protecting yourself from any type Std's again you should have nothing to worry about. And you are doing just fine and a great job with learning all about proper birth control. Good job Chuck1957 Anyway stop worrying I wish more woman were as well informed as you are. Continue doing as you are and you well be safe. Great job with the new type of birth control these days it is very important that you don't miss pill's and take them daily as close to the same time. Relax and have a good day Chuck
