Rare: Today was the last day of period and on regular birth control pills, so you are not ovulating at this time to be concerned with getting pregnant.

Oral contraceptives: Taken as directed, oral contraceptives are very effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy. You are very unlikely to be pregnant. Bear in mind you have been exposed to any infections your partner may carry, something to mention at your gynecology checkup.
