Am I protected after my 7th pill?

Ok so I’m gonna start from the beginning, my first time was on the 6th of October I wasn’t on birth control, we used a condom and he pulled out and I took plan b because I was worried just in case. I got my period on October 15th (3days late) then I did it again on October 27 (no birth control, he used a condom though and pulled out and it didn’t break) and I didn’t get my period but I read it very common that your second period after plan b can be extremely late but I took a pregnancy test November 12th,14th, and 16th and they’re all negative so I’m not worried about that. So here’s my question I just wanted to give some background Now I started my birth control on November 13th (at 12:30am so technically the 14th but that’s basically 13th) now I took my 7th pill on at 12:30 on time on the 19th (20th but I consider 12:30/ midnight not the next day) and on the 20th I had unprotected sex (he did pee before hand and I leaned in my human sexuality class that clears most sperm out of the precum if he did something earlier even though he didn’t) now he did pull out wayyyy before he finished, he finished about 10 minutes after he pulled out now I got very scared because I took my 7th pill the night before and I didn’t know if that means I was protected or not so I went out the next day and got plan b and took at 12:30 with my birth control (8th pill) . I know the massive amount hormones I have in my system is gonna mess up my cycle but can anyone help me on if they think I’m in the clear or not??? I’m having horrible anxiety over this! Am I covered because we had unprotected sex after I took my 7th pill?

So, first. To clear this up, peeing in no way prevents pregnancy.  :>)  That's so surprising to me that they'd make such a comment in a class as it is false.  Pulling out also does not prevent pregnancy. Any time you put a penis in your vagina when you are not fully up to speed on the pill or he's wearing a condom, you've risked pregnancy.  

I'm not even sure how to advise you though. At this point, you have a lot of hormones floating around in your system. I don't think you got pregnant but absolutely YES, your hormonal system will be a hot mess. The plan B wasn't a great idea.  I always took my pill 'sometime' within a 24 hour period and didn't worry about exactly the specific time of day.  If you skip a pill, you can take two the next day and you are probably covered as long as it is a one time thing.  But were you JUST on it for 7 days as in this was your first month taking it?

If not, then yes. you'd always be covered at any time during the month no matter the day. But you just started to take it and missed a pill?  Is that what you are saying?

Anyway, again. Don't think you got pregnant but think you will have a holy heck of a messed up cycle now for another 2 months.  I like that you are responsible and not wanting to get pregnant though . . .  it's just kind of the hard way to go about it.

Yeah this month is my first month taking it and I took my 7th pill the night before having sex and then took my 8th pill that night along with plan b I haven’t missed any pills nor have I taken any of them late. I know it wasnt the best idea to take plan b because it would mess me up so much but I just didn’t want to risk anything! I’d rather have an extremely messed up cycle than to get pregnant haha!
