Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, Condoms, Risks

I'm on orthotricyclen-lo, and I was just wondering something....

I have never missed a single pill and I always take them on time. I'm still a virgin, but if I have sex with my boyfriend and he uses a condom correctly, what are the chances that I could become pregnant?

I'm on the pill and he would be using a condom.

I'd say that if you take the pill correctly, every day at the same time and he uses a condom then if you managed to become pregnant it would be some kind of miracle of god.

Taken correctly, the pill is 99.7% effective and a condom is anywhere from 87-99% effective so if you combine the two i'd say you're really very safe.
