Pregnancy Scare, please help?

I started on Sprintec 28 (Ortho Cyclen) on the fourth of December. Before starting I was taking OPK's to better pinpoint my cycles. I didn't get one positive test this month, I am assuming since I was on the pill. After 9 active pills, my boyfriend and I had sex, he pulled out, but I don't think of that as a method of contraception. I have continued to test my LH and have had no positive tests. I am on cycle day 25 and took a pregnancy test, it was negative, but I am going to test again. I am due to get my period on the twenty first, but I probably won't get it until the placebos. Basically, do you think I was protected? The pamphlet says you are protected after a week, but I am still FREAKING out.

Moey Bear,

Please wait until you have missed your period and take a pregnancy test. We cannot make assumptions based on your withdrawal method but if you were using birth control pills for more than a week you should be protected.

Good Luck,
