Hello basia;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Nordette is not an emergency contraceptive pill.It is a regular birthcontrol/contraceptive pill containing Levonorgestrel and ethyniletradiol and is available in pack of 21 pills.some people do use it as a emergency contraceptive in the way that you have described but there will be side effects like untimely bleeding;spotting ;irregularity of periods which may happen due to misuse of the pills.Better option is if you are sexually active then you can take Nordette regularly as a contraceptive .
