Unprotected sex 1 week after starting the pill.

A few weeks ago, I got started on the alesse 28-day birth control pill. A week after starting it, and taking my pill religiously (on time every day), I had unprotected sex after one night of partying. With a few times later in the month.

Please note, I have not missed a pill the entire month and have taken it just as the doctor had ordered. I had also started the 2nd day after my period.

I have started on the sugar pills and my period has not come and it is the second day on the sugar pills. This is my first time EVER taking BCP. My question is, could I be pregnant?
