Hi, doctors can you help me pls?? I used 4pcs of Nordette (Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg + ethinyl estradiol 30 ug) within 65 hours of unprotected sex, and another 4 pcs of Nordette (Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg + ethinyl estradiol 30 ug) after 12 hours of the 1st dose. Is this effective? This is my first time to used this. I will never try another unprotected sex in my life ever except for my future husband... pls help me i m 19 yr old. we dont have morning after pill or emergency contraceptive here in the philippines, our government banned it. So i used Nordette (Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg + ethinyl estradiol 30 ug) as my emergency contraceptive. Help me pls..

Good PM doctors, i have question, can i use 4pcs nordette(Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg + ethinyl estradiol 30 ug) within my 65 hrs of unprotected sex, and then followed by another 4pcs of Nordette(Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg + ethinyl estradiol 30 ug) after 12 hrs of 1st dosage?

Good day. Can you please help me? I kind of used Nordette the wrong way. I took 1 pill 24 hrs after unprotected sex then took another 1 24 hours later and another 12 hours after the last one. Now I took 4 pills at the same time, 11 hours after. I don t know what to do. It has been 82 hours after the act. What should I do? Should I take 4 more on the next 12 hours? Will it still be effective? I m only 20 yrs old and I think I m fertile at the time of the act. I feel no symptoms of the drug taking effect or being pregnant. please help. thanks.

Hi, i m 17 years old and two days ago i took the morning after pill Levonelle (Sunday morning) yesterday i started having some weird pains in my lower stomach, i don t know the name of the body part that is hurting..the pain is not unbearable or anything i m just worried to what it may be.. it kind of feels like i have trapped wind but when i push it hurts more and makes me feel like i need to pee. Could this have anything to do with taking the Levonelle? also I can t go to the doctors because my doctors only deals with people who have emergencies, and my local hopsital doesn t have an A and E anymore. I can t tell my parents, should I just wait to see if these pains get worse before doing anything?
