As always I am paranoid about pregnancy when I am sexually active, especially now. Just about a month ago I had sex with my ex boyfriend for the last time without a condom. He's always used the withdrawal method, and I've been on Loestrin 24fe for the last three and a half years. If I remember correctly I think I may have been a couple hours late taking the pill a few days before that or had to double up that day because I forgot to take my pill the night before. This would have happened either on Sunday or Monday with the pills, and Wednesday afternoon I had sex with him. With Loestrin, I know they say if you only miss one, that you are fine as long as you take it immediately. What do you think my chances are that I am not pregnant, and I am worrying over nothing?

Thanks so much!

ETA: Here is an update from the anonymous poster, with some more specific details regarding the above situation.

On August 25th I last had sex with an ex boyfriend. At the time we were using the withdrawal method each and every time we had sex. I was also on Loestrin 24 Fe. However, I am concerned that me not being a perfect user of BC from time to time could put me at risk for pregnancy. From what I recall I was either hours late taking my pill on the 23rd, or I missed a pill on the 22nd and had to double up on the 23rd (last time I had placebo pills were Sept 8th-Sept 11th). Lately I've had some abdominal pressure and what not, but I am wondering how much of it is related to my paranoia. It was weird how I did research online one day and ended up "experiencing" one of the symptoms I read about. It seems like the more I think about it, the more it comes back out of nowhere. Should I be concerned? At the beginning of our relationship we used condoms and birth control but eventually he practiced withdrawal without condoms while I was on the pill. With those two methods, even if I am not a perfect user of Loestrin 24 Fe, would I have reason to worry about being pregnant? Thank you for any feedback you can provide. I just hate worrying myself sick!
