Hi there, i have just started the Marvelon combined pill and I’ve just started my first 7 day break. I’m 4 days into the 7 day break and I’ve not bled at all. Is that something to be worried about?

Thank you

I understand your concern.

It's not uncommon to miss the withdrawal bleeding or so called periods once you're on the combination oral contraceptive pills. That can lead to anxiety in people as they may think that they are pregnant but if you've been regular with the pill then you shouldn't get pregnant.

Thank you, ***** *****’t want to be pregnant so that’s what worried me as a first time birth control user. I’ve taken it properly since starting and not missed a day

You shouldn't be pregnant then and can relax.

You're most welcome.
