On birth control, getting periods regularly - could I still be pregnant

What are the odds of being pregnant while on birth control and having had regular periods? I had sex once on October 12 and used a condom + I'm on birth control. Then I had sex 7 times from 11/11 - 11/12 without a condom but I was still on birth control. I had my regular period in October, November and December. I highly doubt I am pregnant but I was just wondering if you think there's a chance? I've gained about 5 pounds since October (although I ate a lot and drank a lot during the holidays and didn't watch what I was eating at all) and sometimes my stomach feels a little queasy. I do have a lot of anxiety in general so maybe I'm just making myself worse by freaking about about possibly being pregnant?

If you've had five regular periods, you're not pregnant. If you were pregnant, you would not be having periods even if you are on the pill.
