If you have taken your pills exactly as directed and on time, you are using a very effective contraceptive method and should have no concerns about pregnancy at any time during the month. If you have missed pills or taken them late, you increase your risk for contraceptive failure, e.g. pregnancy.

Pregnancy: Most likely not. The birth control pill is very effective. Also you have to ovulate to become pregnant which the birth control pill prevents.
