Am I Protected?

I'm new here, and slightly paranoid, so this may seem like a silly question. I take the pill regularly and have done for the past four years or so. On Friday I had sex without using a condom for the first time, previously I had always used a condom as well as taking the pill. Is the pill sufficient to protect against pregnancy on its own? I haven't missed any of them.

Thank you

Yes it is safer than just a condom so you will be fine there is only I tiny chance but it is unlikely

All contraceptive pills if taken correctly (which it sounds like you are) are very effective, pills don't protect against STIs though so if your partner hasn't had a checkup probably best for you both to get tested before you start having regular unprotected sex.
