Nordette Overview

Extended or continuous cycle combined oral contraceptive pills are a packaging of combined oral contraceptive pills (COCPs) that reduce or eliminate the withdrawal bleeding that would occur once every 28 days in traditionally packaged COCPs.

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...

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...

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? That can be a side effect of taking oral contraceptives, according to the U.S. FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and PMS-like symptoms. If it doesn't change, in a few months, you should consult your doctor. ## Hi, I've b...

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 ...
