Can i use Nordette Emergency Pill twice ?

Can i use Nordette Emergency Pill twice? and for someone with PCOS? Nordette used as an EMERGENCY pill can be taken within 120 hours after sex, right? If my husband and i will have our honeymoon for 10 days, Can we have unprotected sex everyday..then take the pill before the 5th day (120 hours)... and take another set before the 10th day? Btw. I ve got PCOS ( Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome ). Which means..my period s irregular and only comes every other month. That s why i wasnt able to use Regular Birth control pill. So, will Nordette still work as an E-pill? It s the only choice i have. HELP ME PLS. Nordette is the only E-pill available in the Philippines.

Hello Ms.Liverpool;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Nordette is a estrogen progesterone combinationand is a regular birthcontrol pill.It is not an emergency contraceptive and yet is used by few people in high dose like 4 pills with in 120hours as you have said.This may cause excess of hormone and can act like an emergency contraception but it is harmful.If you are married and do not want to have kid immediately please use Nordette 21 regularly ;this will help you in contraception as well as will not disturb your periods or cause problems.
Be safe and use medicines judiciously and under guidance of a doctor for a healthy life.
Thanks

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
