Is Nordette ECP useful to prevent pregnancy ?

had unprotected sex on April 21 and she took 4 Nordette before the 24th hour of the the 120 hour window and another 4, 12 hours later as directed if nordette was used as ECP. She had some period after 7 days(april 28) but her regular is on 15 or 16 of every month. 1. The question is was it effective? can i say that she will not get pregnant? (since i assume that the period which arrived on the 7th day after use was the effect of nordette withdrawal ) 2. When will her next period come? would it still arrive on the 15 or 16 of the next month? if it doesn t arrive is she pregnant even though the withdrawal effect from nordette came?

Hi ,
No I don't think she is pregnant as she has taken the full dose within the time period.The drug can cause irregular cycles , to be more sure you can do pregnancy test at home.
