How effective is the birth control pill if you're highly fertile?

Very. If you take birth control pills and don't accidentally skip any pills, they are 99% effective. Occasionally other medicines you may take can interfere with the birth control pills so you should let your doctor know about any other medicines you are taking.
Excellent, but... With no missed pills, "perfect use", the failure rate is 0.3%->99% effective.In typical use, because taking a pill every d without ever missing is hard, about 9/100 couples will get pregnant/year.Effective after 7 days.If you have a hard time remembering daily meds, ask your doctor about long-acting reversible contraception(larc)--iuds or an implant under the skin-easy, very effective, lasts 3-10 yrs.

I am going to have my baby in december. I am very fertile. I tried preventing this baby with plan b, but it didn't work. Which birth control pill will work for me after I have my baby? I plan to breastfeed.

Birthcontrol. Estrogen containing birth control methods tend to cause decrease in breast milk production if used in the first 4 months of breastfeeding. Progesterone containing ones such as mirena, (levonorgestrel) depo-provera, Implanon subdermal, or mini-pill (micronor) don't have that side effect. Condoms are always another option.

I started my birth control pill about three days ago. I had sex last night and according to my app I start my fertile window tomorrow. Could I be preg?

Hard to guess. One can do a home urine pregnancy test if worried. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. Read more...
