The chances are very slim. It is possible, but very unlikely. The pill and a spermicide condom are the best way to go for protection.

This is the method that my boyfriend and I use. It is the most effective because if the condom fails and he ejaculates inside of you, you always have the birth control to back it up. But this instance is highly unlikely!

its the best way to go that is what my boyfriend and i use and it is great!!! but it is highly unlikely to get pregnant

I WOULD SAY PREETY DAMB HARD ! IF U TOOK THE PILL AS INSTRUCTED AND ALWAYS USED A CONDEM THATS PRETTY MUCH FOOL PROOF,MAYBE IF U R NERVOUS ABOUT BIENG PREGNANT SOMTIMES NERVES DELAY YOUR CYCLE

Zero. unassuming that there is no divine intervention.

about 0.01%

The odds are very slim, but it is possible especially if the condom breaks and/or if the regularity of your pill taking has suffered any lapses. If condoms are 99% effective and the pill is 99% effective, that means there is still a one in ten thousand chance of becoming pregnant over no protection at all. I was in a relationship where I had sex 5,000 times in a seven year period with double protection. Didn't get pregnant.

The pill doesnt work for everyone and condoms can break or have a hole in it. It is very unlikely but it can happen.

Unlikely but still possible

I'm going to take a nerd approach here...assuming that the birth control pill when used as directed is 97% effective and a condom when used entirely correct is 96% effective then here's what we have: A 3% chance of pregnancy with the pill and a 4% chance with a condom. Now when used in conjunction with one another we have the probability of A intersection with B (A = pill, B = condom) since these two events are independent of one another. Therefore to determine the likelihood of event A or B happening or both events occurring we would simply multiply P(A) X P(B), yielding 0.0012 or 0.12% chance of pregnancy given both are used correctly, as directed, and in conjunction with one another. So, if you have sex using the aforementioned method with no pregnancies 832 times...I'd be careful about one more night of passion b/c the law of probability says that girl is gonna get prego!! and makes it a little easier to understand.

that is a very secure method to use because basicly you are doubling up, i use the same method that you do for about 4 months now and i have not become pregnant, so it looks pretty unlikely

Chances of PregnancyThere is always a chance in everything, but if you are using protection correctly your chances of getting pregnant are very low.

Birth control is actually safer. Birth control I believe is 99.999---% effective. Where as condoms with the perfect use is only 98%.

There are many effective products and techniques for birth control. The most effective and popular is the contraceptive pill. Also available are condoms, the coil and the cap.

No method of birth control is 100% effective, including condoms. Of every 100 couples who use condoms correctly and consistently, only two will experience a pregnancy. The pill is 99% effective if used exactly as prescribed and a day is never missed.

If you don't start the birth control pill within the time that the injection was effective, you will need to use a backup method, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, for the first seven days of the first pill pack in order to get uninterrupted protection. Keep in mind that the birth control pill is less effective than Depo Provera, so you may choose to use condoms regularly for additional pregnancy (and disease) protection; however, both are considered highly-effective methods.
