User :   Hi i just wanted to ask a quick statistics question
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you
Doctor :Go ahead
User :   hold on
User :   lol its kind of a long story
User :   ok i have been taking a BC pill (Tri-Sprintec) for about 2 years now and sometimes because of work i'll be off by a few hours of taking it, but i have been good about taking it every day, never missed a single day, but my boyfriend wants to try not using a condom and trying the 'pull-out' method

User :   what are the chances of me getting pregnant?
Doctor :   Are you asking this question inspite of you taking the BC pill

User :   yes - i want to be sure
Doctor :   If you are using the Birth control pill the chances of its failure even if you are following the pull out method is less than 1%
Doctor :   That is Birth control pill is the most effective if used correctly than a condom.
Doctor :   Its effect is not compounded by using a condom
