Very low.: Glad to hear that you are using optimal protection. Consistent & correct use of condoms has a 98 % rate of efficacy in preventing pregnancy. However, condoms are not always used consistently or properly which can lead to a first-year efficacy rate for pregnancy protection of 85 to 86 %. Protection is higher when condom is combined with oral contraceptive. Take care.

Very low: That's about as good as you can get if you're sexually active.
