Am I protected?

Hey all! Could you please ease my mind?

I'm on the pill and I haven't missed one in the past three weeks. However, I'm pretty bad at taking it at the proper time, but always get it within a three hour window (9p.m. to 12a.m.). I took my last pill in the pack Wednesday night (April 17) and my period is due on Monday (April 22).

My partner and I had sex this morning (April 19) and we always start out without a condom. However, before he ejaculates, he always stops and puts on a condom before finishing. This method usually works really well for us and gives us a lot of peace of mind because we'd really rather that I not get pregnant right now. Unfortunately, this morning, he came before he could get a condom. He pulled out quickly and says he is 95% sure he was completely out before his orgasm, but I could feel some wetness. He then cleaned up, put on a condom, and we continued.

I maybe should have said something at the time, but I've been working hard at trying to convince myself that the pill gives me more than enough protection. My question here is, I'm right, right? Even with my not-quite-perfect use, I should be pretty covered and I don't need to take any further action (i.e. Plan B)?

I know a lot of people rely on just birth control, but I just really REALLY do not want to get pregnant right now, and the combination of condoms and the pill really ease my mind and has been working well for us for the past two years, except for this incident. So I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance. Thank you in advance.
