Do you think that I am pregnant?

Do you think that I am pregnant?
I am on birth control (not a mini pill), and I had sex. I usually take my pill at 7:30pm, and we had sex at 3pm. We were out of town and did not get back until 2am. I then took my pill at 2am, 6 or so hours after I should have.

He was not wearing a condom, however he did pull out before ejaculation. (Not the safest method I am aware).

I have taken birth control for two months continuously now (aka: I skipped my last period) under the advisement of a doctor due to another health issue. So I have not had my period in 2 months.

When I had sex I was a week away from having my next period.

I took a PLAN B pill 24 hours after the intercourse as a precaution.

I have taken my pill regularly for the remainder of the week.

What is the likelihood I am pregnant, since I forgot my pill for those 6 hours?

Any advice would be great. Thankyou.

When you use the combination birth control pill, missing one pill and taking it as soon as you remember (ie, 6 hours "late") does not decrease the effectiveness of the pill.

In other words, you would still have the same 99% effectiveness at preventing pregnancy when taking the birth control pill, assuming you use it consistently and correctly all other times.
