Yes, you can change your start day without increasing the risk of pregnancy as long as you don't go more than seven days without an active pill. To do so, just start the next pack earlier than scheduled, rather than later. So if you want to change your start day from Sunday to Wednesday, and you took your last active pill on Saturday, take the placebo/sugar pills for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, discard the old pack, and take the first active pill of the new pack on Wednesday.

There is no known percentage for definate. if you use a condom then there is roughly a 5% change of getting pregnant, where as if you use no protection or contraception, the risk is considerably high. if you dont want to become pregnant you may want to consider birth control, and also without a condom you run the risk or catching an STI or STD.

of course. the birth control pill is very effective if taken correctly. there is always room for human error, so yes there is a chance of getting pregnant while being on birth control and no condom use.

A pap smear does not change the odds of getting pregnant.

If you change the patch late, you may get pregnant. If you change the patch early, you are not at additional risk.

Having sex without birth control results in pregnancy for 85% of couples using no method for a year. Previous use of the contraceptive implant does not change this number.
