Pregnant: Being on birth control pills should protect you. If concerned, purchase a pregnancy test
Dr. Mary David
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Unlikey: If you are taking your pills properly, the risk of pregnancy is extremely smal.
Dr. Charles Whiting
Obstetrics and Gynecology 27 years experience
No: Even if you were not on birth control pills it would be highly unlikely to become pregnant by sitting on sheets. Since you are on birth control pills you are protected by a belt and suspenders. You won't get pregnant from this. Best wishes!
Dr. Katharine Cox
Pediatric Emergency Medicine 45 years experience
Unlikely: Birth Control Pills are very effective for preventing pregnancy but not 100%. They do not prevent the transmission of diseases. Be careful and protect yourself against both.
