Basiabanks..where did you get the Nordette? I've been to the most popular here in our country - Philippines (you know what it is ;) ) today..and they gave me this (check link for picture)

but then..i've done my research and it is instructed to take it as: Take 4 light-orange pills within 120 hours after unprotected sex and 4 more light-orange pills 12 hours later.

like this:

but what has given to me is only plain white in color.
Do you have the same? and where did you get it? PLEASE. HELP ME.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

If you are sure that you have vomited the pills , you need to take them again.Before you take your emergency pill , make a decision whether you need it by calculating your safe period and chances of pregnancy.And you should be taking Levonorgesterol alone but not a combination.
Once taken , it take s around 1 - 4 hours for the drug to reach peak levels.

I advise you to consider the risk of pregnancy and then have the drug agai as you vomited.For better advice or more information , add any questions as comments here or feel free to mail me.

Take care.
