I had sex on my third day of menstruation. My boyfriend ejaculated inside me 3 times. I took 4 pills of Nordette at 1pm and another 4 pills after 12 hours. Am I safe from getting pregnant already? I know it was a really stupid action. After 3 days I took 1 pill of Nordette just to be sure at 10pm. I fell asleep and woke up at 5am bleeding with dark red to black-ish color of blood. I dont really understand whats happening anymore. I tried searching for answers and I cant seem to find any answers. I searched the word withdrawal bleeding and breakthrough bleeding. I cant understand what it meant though. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!! :(

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us for help.

There was no risk for pregnancy when you had intercourse on the third day of menstruation. Ovulation had passed, so no egg to fertilize.

Nordette is a combination oral contraceptive that contains synthetic progesterone and estrogen, that is taken one pill each day.

Anonymous, why did you take four pills at a time and repeat this 12 hours later?

You overdosed. Please seek medical attention right away. Either call your gynecologist or call a poison help line. Overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting and vaginal bleeding.
