If you are on a pill such as OrthoTricyclen, you are given a week of 'dummy' pills which contain no hormones. This allows your body to have a period. If you have unprotected sex during this time you should be protected from pregnancy just as any other time of the month. HOWEVER you should NEVER have unprotected sex unless you are in a committed, monogamous relationship with someone whom you know definitely has a clean bill of health. No hormonal Birth Control protects you from diseases such as AIDS and herpes, only barrier methods such as condoms will do that. And please, still be careful!

Should you talk to your doctor if you do not get a period at all during your first month of use of the pill?

If this is your first month on birth control and you have not missed any pills, then see your Doctor. If you have missed pills or took too many pills, then this is why your period hasn't arrived. A period not arriving during the first month of birth control is not uncommon and can be due to your body becomming used to the medication or pregnancy. If you had unprotected intercourse during the first month of taking birth control then I would recommend you perform a pregnancy test.
