Birth Control After Hysterectomy

I had a supracervical laparoscopic hysterectomy last August for fibroid cysts.  I have not been sexually active since then.  I still have my ovaries, no uterus.  Shortly, I will be sexually active again and I am wondering if I need to use birth control or not.  I am not sure what the chances of a tubal or some other sort of pregnancy are but I am concerned and am wondering if I need to be or not.
Thank you.

There is no need for birth control as u said you had your uterus removed so there is no where for a embryo to implant itself
