On birth control pills, have safe sex with spermicidal lubricant condoms, always paranoid about pregnancy on late arrival of periods. How can I get rid of this habit?

I am 18 years old and i have been on birth control since i was 15.When i was 15, i only took it because it made my periods alot better but now that i am older i use it for the pregnancy prevention. I messed up my old pill pack this past month and my doctor switched me to a new birth control called Nortrel. I have been taking it for 2 days so far and i havent noticed any sudden change. Whenever my boyfriend and i have sex, we always use a condom(spermacidal lubricant kind), and im always on birth control and he never ejaculates inside of me and the condom has never broke because we always check afterwards. But whenever we do have sex, we have sex for only 5 minutes because i am always so paranoid that something is going to happen. And even when we have sex and everything checks out good in the end, I always still freak out when my period comes along, even when my period isnt late. Is there anything i can do to not be so paranoid or can you talk me through this. I really want to have sex and its not that my boyfriend is pushing me, its my own personal issue because i dont want this to follow me through my entire life.

Thanks for your Query,
You should continue to take your old or new pills along with spermicidal condoms that is a first requisite.
I would like to suggest you a safer sex method that will help you to reduce your paranoid.
First you understand that pregnancy occurs due to contact of ovum of female & sperm of a regular period female having 28 days cycle ovulation takes place on 14 th day of cycle.Now the male sperm can live in your body for 2-3 days & your ovum can live for 4-5 days.So if you have a sex on 12 th day of your cycle to 18 th day of your cycle then & then you only gets pregnancy.To be more safer side we should add 2 days on each side so if you have a sex on middle 10 day of your cycle then you get pregnancy.
So enjoy sex for first 10 days of your cycle & last 10 days of your cycle without any fear of pregnancy.
