Hi,

Orthotricyclen is a combined hormone contraceptive. As you have been taking it for the last 3 months,therefore your contraceptive effect should be present even without taking ECP (Next choice). However, Next choice also reduces your chances of being pregnant up to 90% after sexual exposure.

Therefore, practically, your chances of being pregnant are almost nil. Yellow white, discharge in this case may be just before start of your periods and your periods may start any time. It is very much normal and arrival of your periods will confirm that you are not pregnant.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
