I hope you are on regular combined birth control pills. Combined oral pills are more than 99% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies when they are taken religiously. The effectiveness is slightly altered when you miss more than one pill.

Since you have been on pills for years, I presume you take them without missing pills. In such a case, I don't think you have any chance of being pregnant.

Let me know if my presumption is not right. We shall discuss further.

Best Regards
