Hello all I'm new to this site and would greatly appreciate any and all feedback in regards to this matter.
I am twenty years of age and was recently discovered with a Thyroid Condition (My antibodies attacked my thyroid gland killing one gland (left) and the remaining thyroid gland (right) has three tumors yet to have a biopsy). Now I have just entered a new relationship after having remained abstinent for seven months and have been sexually active.
I began an oral contraceptive called Trinessa the first Sunday after my cycle, took five or so pills daily then stopped after feeling not quite right. I waited about seven days (at very most) and began taking the rest of the pack everyday for the past two weeks on time daily, and am nearing (1 pill away) from my "Reminder Pills."
The man and I attempted to use a back-up method of birthcontrol as I am familiar that no birthcontrol is considered fully effective until one month (depending on the individual I presume) but with a health issue of poor blood circulation, he was not able to obtain an erection with the condom. We proceeded to have relations without the back-up method but ensured that he did not *** inside me.
My question is this--What are the possible chances of my being pregnant with a missing thyroid, two weeks (although a bit screwed) on an oral contraceptive, and using the withdrawal method?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Since you started the birth control pills this month and also have not taken them regularly so it would not have given any contraceptive effect.Thyroid can have effect on menstrual cycles depending on their levels and what was the effect before.Withdrawl method is also not a safe one and carries a risk of pregnancy so possibility of pregnancy cannot be completely ruled out.
Wait for the periods right now.If they are missed consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
