BC pill + condom + pullout method = safe against pregnancy?

I'm so sorry for coming again with my sex questions, but sometimes I feel that I have nowhere else to turn, and that I need an expert's opinion.
I had sex with my boyfriend just now and we used a condom and were doing it from behind, and he withdrew and touched himself and he came into the condom. I panicked, as he'd never came before while we had sex (we've only started recently doing it) but he said that if he had come into me, I would've definitely felt it, which I don't think I did.

I'm on the BC pill, like I said I take it very faithfully, but I get so scared about getting pregnant before I'm ready. I'm thinking that i should finish my pill pack early as it's due to finish next Saturday, so that I could have my period come early and have peace of mind. It also adds stress to my situation that I'm due to travel at the end of the month on an exchange uni program where I'll be overseas for eight months. I don't want to spend my last few days at home worrying about this, but at the same time I don't know what to do.

Is there a chance of pregnancy??

Dear RK,

Thank you for your post.

You are on birth control, he used a condom and pulled out even so. You are not pregnant. Keep taking your pills as usual. If you have a fear of getting pregnant even while on birth control, my suggestion is to stop engaging in sex until you can educate yourself about how sex and birth control work. Otherwise, you will continue to feel this kind of stress and insecurity about sex.
