ok, im still a virgen but i got on birthcontrol pills last week because my boyfriend and i are beginning to talk about starting to have sex. we have been dateing for over a year and have been talking about the subject for over 6 months. we've decided that we are going to use the pill and condomes everytime we do have sex when we start to. but im still worried a little bit that im going to get pregnant, id really like to have your input on this, cuz i know im probably just being really paranoied. but if anyone could present me with the likelyhood of this happening i would really appreseate it. =)

You're being smart by deciding to use both a condom and the pill. If used correctly your chances of getting pregnant are pretty much zip.
To the effect of Amanda's post, it may be wise to make sure you use the pill routinely for about 2-3 months before having sex, just to make sure your body has a consistent dose of the medical ingredients; and to ensure that the pill is working/not giving you any side effects. Some pills won't work for everyone, so it would be nice to find out BEFORE things happen.
