Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, the nordette pill taken after 4 days of first intercourse will not help in contraception. It has to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

When this pill is taken after 4 days, it may lead to many complication. You should have taken an opinion of a doctor.

Now, just wait for your next period. If you miss it, then you have to do a home pregnancy test on or after the day of missed period.

The next step should be determined depending upon the test.

Hope this will be helpful.
