... every time. Iv been on the pill for a year and just missed my last period. I went to tha gyno for my anual checkup but she didn't say anything. Could I be pregnate?
If you're taking your pill correctly there is less then a 1% chance you're pregnant. If you had a pelvic exam, sometimes the dr can tell if you're pregnant by changes in your cervix, if that was the case, she certainly would have told you. And forget pulling out, it means nothing. A man secretes sperm in your vagina before he ejaculates.
Your partner does NOT have to pull out. If you are taking your pill correctly, meaning every day at roughly the same time of day, you are protected. Birth control pills stop you from ovulating. If there is no egg, there can be no baby no matter how many sperm are present. After a woman is established on the Pill, the only reason to use condoms is for STD protection, not contraception, unless you miss a pill then you would need condoms for back up protection. Pulling out before ejaculation is NOT back up! Men secrete sperm all through the sex act, not just when they ejaculate. When you miss a pill (or more) you could potentially ovulate so that is why they tell you to use back up protection.
