Condom broke during sex, took 4 pills of Nordette 2 times. Is the dosage correct ?

Hi Doc, Me and my bf had sex earlier today but apparently the condom broke and he was not aware so he basically cum inside me. We bought Nordette from Pfizer and I took 4 pills in the 4:30 pm and another around 4:00 am later. I read from blog site that it should be the yellow pills but the one we bought are all white, are they the same? and is the dosage I took correct? Appreciate your advise as I cannot be pregnant that is why we are having protected sex but the condom broke so this is really a big accident. Appreciate your immediate help and advise if the pills I took was correct and can really help me prevent pregnancy.

Welcome to HCM
Packets of Nordette contains 21 Active ( Hormonal Tablets) and 7 non active ( Iron ) tablets. Different Pharmaceutical company can use different colors to differentiate between the two. You have taken right medicines, and correct dosage and right time. SO most probably you will not be pregnant. Studies have shown that these pills can prevent 75% of pregnancies.
You must continue using Condom for this cycle. From next month you should consult Doctor and use double protection. If you do not get period after 21 days of your last Nordette , you must do
Pregnancy test.
I hope I have answered your query.

In our country the active tablets are yellow and the inactive tablets are red. Did you not get the whole packet? You need to go back to the pharmacist and make sure you had the active tablets, if there is any doubt you can take post coital contraception again , as long as it is within 72 hours of having had intercourse.
