Taking another pack after finishing the 21 pills

Hello, i just want to ask, is it ok to take another pack after finishing tge 21pills? I did not follow the 7 day free pill. The purpose of taking the pills is for my acne breakouts and thinking that it could help regularized my mens. Is it normal to have a delayed mens since this is my first timee to use the product? I am just curious if its safe or what. Or the 7days free pill must be followed?? Looking forward for your reply. Thank you. ## The 7 days free is what allows you to have a period, when taking oral contraceptives, according to the NIH. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. Thus, it is best to take those 7 days off. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi! I also have question about nordette pills. I f...

Oralcon contraceptive pills: Can you get pregnant while taking?

I wanted to know if I could use oralcon pills and if there's still a chance of me getting pregnant while taking them? I'm asthmatic.

How To Take Micropil Pills

Is it ok if i changed pills every month? my first 4 months i took althea pill but i felt that it makes me dry, then i changed to nordette for 3 months but i felt frequently headache, and now Im taking micropill. Is there any effect about it? ## You may experience some more side effects by changing frequently, because of the different hormone levels that are in them, but that's about all, unless your doctor has said otherwise. However, due to that fact, you should settle on one as soon as you can get one that works well for you, without causing problems and not keep switching. Our bodies really don't like the constantly fluctuating hormone levels. Is there anything else I can help with? ## i was determined recently to had a pcos.i am not having menses for almost 3mos.duphaston do...

Delay in period when I took nordette as an ecp

Hello. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex last March 31. Fearing pregnancy, I took Nordette as an emergency contraceptive at 6pm on April 1st. I can't seem to remember when but I had a withdrawal bleeding on the month of April for 5 days. The following month, May, I had my period from May 24-28th. But then my menstruation skipped June. Now, it is currently July 21st and I still haven't had my period. Should I be worried? My mom's been bugging me to see a doctor but I'm afraid she might find out that I took pills. Help please :( ## Where did you fill your prescription for nordette? Is it still available in mercury or through Watson?

Nordette pill ECP for unprotected sex

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex last November 1, 2015 at around 1pm. I took 4 Nordette pills as an ECP after 24 hours (Nov.2) Then another 4 pills after 12 hours. I did not vomit or anything. But I felt dizzy and sick for 2 days. Then yesterday, (November 6) we had unprotected sex again. I told him that I'd take another dose but he didn't want me to. I still took 4 pills. But I didn't take another 4 after 12 hours. Would that still work? I'm worried. Should I wait for my first dose withdrawal? And would it withdraw the (possible) sperms inside me that the 2nd unprotected sex brought about? ## Hello can someone pls help me. Nahhysterical na ko knowing that hindi pa ko nagkakameron until now. I had my first day of menstruation last March 6-11 it was protected tapos ...

Took Nordette last month now I'm 8 days delayed?

Hi, any answer would be helpful. So I had sex March 25th, and took Nordette on March 30th. I had withdrawal bleeding 5 days after. The whole month of April I was sexually inactive. I was supposed to get my period May 5th, and I'm like clockwork, even after taking Nordette before (and I've used it multiple times). I felt slight cramping last week but only for a while and suddenly nothing. Could I be pregnant? I'm really stressed so I would appreciate the help. Thank you. ## Hi. I just want to ask if your dalayed period fall into pregnancy. Thanks

Effectivity of Nordette Contraceptive

Hi, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. I went to my OB last week and she told me that I was ovulating. And then my boyfriend accidentally ejaculated inside of me.

Bleeding on Oralcon contraceptive pills

Hi, my chemist sister did not have nordette in stock and said that oralcon is exactly the same as nordette and supplied me with 3 months supply. However, I have been semi bleeding as in brown and black blood from day 4 of taking these tablets- every single day. Some days a sudden blob of red blood came. I took my last white tablet today and have been wearing a sanitary pad whole way thru. Suppose to start with my normal period tomorrow. Is this normal? my system is very confused at the moment. ## Hello, Heloise! How are you? Has there been any change?

Thank you ## Is it effective to use Micropil as an ECP? Nordette id no longer available here in our country as per Pharmacy attendant ## I had unprotected intercourse with my husband and it's my fertile period.

Failed or not?

Hi. My girlfriend and I had an oral last jan 7, but no intercourse. We're just so afraid of having a baby because we're too young for that. So I let her take nordette 18 hours after the deed and another dose after 12 hours. She still not bleeding until now, it's been a week, does nordette fails? Please help us :((( ## I don't think she'll be pregnant beause of what you have said, you did it ORALLY. Common sense. ## She cannot get pregnant from oral actions, there is nothing to worry about. At this point, her period is most likely late due to her taking the Nordette, it can throw her cycle off, her period may not appear at its regular time, she may experience spotting, or other PMS-like symptoms, according to NIH reports. Has there been any change? Did she experience ...

I have read that when you take nordette you will experience side effects like nausea and breast tenderness. My partner and i did It, then 2 days after i learned about nordette and used it as ecp. I followed the instruction, 4 pills and then another 4pills exactly 12 hrs later. It has been seven days since i took the second batch, but i haven't had any of the sideeffects. Is that okay?
