Can someone with PCOS take an emergency pill ?

Ive got PCOS ( Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome ). A hormonal imbalance which causes me to have my period EVERY OTHER month (1st week usually). I havent taken any pills for my PCOS treatment..and my husband is about to arrive in 3 days. thats why im stuck in EMERGENCY PILL. I ve got two questions: 1. If my period comes on 1st week of June, does it mean that im fertile next week ( Ovulation happens 2 wks before expected date, right?), even if im considered having an irregular period? 2. Can i use the Emergency Pill -- Nordette? Please HELP me.
