Welcome to ehealthforum,
Using two methods of birth control gives you higher protection. If you have been taking your birth control pill regularly at scheduled time, you should have the protection. The chances of pre-cum causing pregnancy is less (but not completely ruled out) if you were regular with your birth control use. Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding. If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
