A 17-year-old female asked:

Is it a high chance of pregnancy with the birth control pill without a condom?

No: The bcp is very effective alone. The condom may help with safe sex but really does not add too much for contraception if you use the pill correctly. Best wishes.

Conception rates: Even with perfect use of the pill most contraceptive makers state the pills is 95%-97% effective. So, that would give you a 3%-5% rate of pregnancy with the pill.
