Thank you for the additional information,

You do not need to worry about pregnancy if you have been taking the birth control pill as prescribed.
The pill prevents you from ovulating.

When you are on the sugar pills, this is simply the time when the lining of your uterus is does not increase your chance of getting pregnant.

When used properly (meaning when taken every day), the birth control pills are highly effective. (Although nothing is 100% at preventing pregnancy except not having sex, the pill is pretty close)

Let me know if you have any follow up questions,
