im on the the pill and i take it every night usually within an hour or so apart from each other. then i had sex and the condom broke, and he didn’t “pull out” for a few seconds until he realized the condom broke. what are the chances i could be pregnant? help!

You probably have nothing to worry about. There is only an extremely small chance that you’re pregnant. When used correctly, the pill is up to 99.7 percent effective against pregnancy. So the chance that you are pregnant are less than one in one hundred.

Many women who take the pill also use condoms, because the pill offers no protection against sexually transmitted infections — only latex and female condoms do. So it’s a good idea to use condoms every time you have sex if you want to protect against sexually transmitted infections as well as pregnancy.
