I'm a woman on accutane. Had sex and condom broke but also taking BC pills. Chances of pregnancy?? Should I take Plan B as a backup?

In brief: Yes- you're at risk

BC pills being taken at the same time can certainly give you 1 level of protection but having vaginal sex with a fertile male ALWAYS runs you the risk of pregnancy.
If you're within 24 hrs. of when you had relations then, Plan B can still work. Greater than that then, it may not be worth doing that....

In brief: Very unlikely

If you have been taking birth control pills at least for a couple of month as instructed then you should be safe from pregnancy.
Because of birth defects with Accutane it is mandatory that you take birth control. All the best.
