This girl I am having sex with is on the pill (but not perfect) but I am pulling out as well. Can someone help ease my mind that my chances of getting her pregnant are pretty low?

Not only that, but she needs to take the Pill AT THE SAME TIME every day. Tell her to set an alarm! A friend of mine didn't know this and got pregnant, even though she was on the Pill, because she wasn't taking it at the same time every day.

Birth control failure is rated like this...
If a method is considered to be about 80% effective, such as typical condom use, that means in one year, 20% (or 1 in 5) of the couples using this method will experience an unwanted pregnancy. This is taking into account those people with unknown fertility issues as well.
Condoms in perfect use are considered to be around 95% effective, however typical use states exactly that - typical use. Typical use includs improper application of the condom, inside out use, tearing, ripping, sliding off, etc.. Things that happen in typical use.
Withdrawl is considerd a seperate method of pregnancy prevention. All methods are rated by themselves. There is no official statistic of doubling up (i.e. Condoms and the pill, pill and withdrawl.) So to answer your question, unless you are specifically looking at withdrawl it is assumed that the man is finishing inside.

Same with my boyfriend and I. I take the Pill every day at the exact same time, religiously, and my boyfriend and I never use condoms, he cums inside me all the time, and the Pill has been 100% effective for us.
