I assume your query is about Nordette birth control pill and I answer accordingly.

Yes, it is still fine for you to take the pill. Better option would be to use a barrier method or a condom while having sexual intercourse. It would prevent you from pregnancy as well as from STDs.

If you are on the pill regularly then the chances that you would conceive are very less.

Hope this helps.

General & Family Physician Dr. Chandra Shekhar Sharma's  Response

Welcome to HCM,

You haven't mentioned composition of Norzette, thus it is not clear that whether it is an oral contraceptive or emergency contraceptive pill.

As it seems to be a hormonal pill, it have side effects.

Hormonal pills on long use, can cause infertility, thus shouldn't be used regularly.

At the age of 17, you are fertile. Therefore you should avoid unprotected sex.

As condom protects you from STD also, always insist for use of condom.

Emergency contraceptive pill should be taken in emergency like slip/break of condom only.

Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic and posting your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

With good wishes,

Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
