This question was semi sort ofly already answered a few topics back but the girls situation wasn't the exact same as mine so I wanted to ask to be safe...My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 4 months now and we just started having sex (the end of last month), we've had sex twice and the first time we used a condom and that was 2 days before my period and my period was regular, then the second time we had sex (yesterday) we used a condom at first because he couldn't get it in without the condom (because the condom was lubricated it made it easier) but we stopped and were getting ready to leave his house and decided we wanted to have sex again and we didn't use a condom, he pulled out and i've been on birth control for a month and 3 days, I missed one pill last month that I didn't take as soon as I realized I missed it, and I missed 1 that I did take as soon as I realized I missed it, both of us were virgins up until our first time together so i'm not really worried about stds but I just want to know how high the possibility of pregnancy is? And if we continue to not use condoms but I stay on the pill and he pulls out how high the risk of pregnancy is?
Chance of being pregnant?
First off, it's good that you are on the pill. I wouldn't worry too much about the pills you've missed. If you find you're forgetting more then you like try to come up with a system that keeps you taking the pill every day, at the same time. I have a friend who takes it first thing when she gets up in the morning, even before she's fully out of bed.If your having problems with penitration with or without a condom you should look into picking up some lubricant. Most drugs stores stock it with the condoms. KY is pretty good, I prefere ID myself. Remember with water-based lubricants you may need to reapply several times as they have a tendency to dry out."Pulling out" is not a good way to avoid either pregency or STDs. While you said both of you were virgins before having sex with each other, you place a great deal of your future on the line when you decided your going to trust somone to stay faithful. If, heaven forbid, he cheat on you with someone who's sick, he could pass it on to you when not using a condom. I always suggest condoms as the best way to practice safer sex.To answer your original question. The birth control pill is now 99% effective at preventing unwanted pregencies. So, yes it is a very effective way to prevent getting pregent if you're having unprotected sex. If that is the way you're going to go, unprotected sex that is, I suggest you pick up some spermicide, should be right there with the lube and condoms. Sometimes you'll even find lube with spermicide in it.~Al LNA
