    If my boyfriend came inside me while in the middle of taking my contraceptive pill can I get pregnant even though I take it correctly everyday

    If you are taking it correctly as instructed, the chances of pregnancy are very low. For a 'take every day' progesterone-only pill, only about one in a thousand women taking it correctly become pregnant in any year. For a 'take for three weeks, then have a week break' combined pill, it's even less than that.

    Is that safe enough for you? If not, look at things like the implant or using condoms as well.

    (Some staggeringly bad 'advice' deleted: if you don’t take them everyday - if you're using a progesterone-only pill - then the chances of being pregnant will increase greatly. All medicines have side effects, and it's a case of judging whether the risks of pregnancy outweigh any you get from the pill. Whether you let him come inside you is down to you, not some random internet idiot.)
