If : If you were pregnant, you would no longer have periods. Women have a period if an unfertilized egg is passed through the uterus. If no egg implants into the uterus, then the uterine lining sheds, resulting in a period. Since you are having a period, then the uterine lining is shedding. It is wonderful that you are protecting yourself with a condom and the birth control pills. It is safe to say that your chances of being pregnant are very low.

No: You are not pregnant if you've had your period, have a negative pregnancy test and have consistently taken the pills, but for the future you should know about emergency birth control that is available without a prescription so if the condom leaks, breaks or slips off, you have a backup plan.
