... i just had unprotected sex without using the "pull out" method, im wondering what the chances are of getting pregnant. I take it rather faithfully and im just a little curious seein as its the first time this has happened
Birth control pills, when taken perfectly meaning every day at roughly the same time of day, are about 98-99.9% effective. When taken by the average user, meaning sometimes late or an occasional miss, they drop in effectiveness to 96-98% effective. If you are faithful in taking the Pill daily, you are pretty well protected even if he ejaculates. The pill stops you from ovulating. If there is no egg, there is no baby no matter how many sperm are inside you.
