I have not come on but i take the pill?

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I take marvalon contraception pill. I take my pill for 21 days then have a 7 day break. In the 1st week of taking my pill I bled a little bit then it stopped. I have had unprotected sex with my partner in the month. I was supposed to come on 5 days ago but nothing? what does that mean?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you are regular with taking the birth control pills at a scheduled time and have not missed taking them, then you will be protected against pregnancy.
If you are regular with her birth control, then it will also suppress ovulation (egg release from ovary). If however, this was your first pack of Marvalon pill use, then you are not protected, protection starts with the second pack. Look out for any other new symptom development. Delay of 5-0 days in periods is considered to be normal. If the periods are more than 10 days delayed, then do not ignore, but go ahead with examination and blood tests done by a gynecologist o confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
