So i took Nordette as ECP (1st dosage -4 pills and 12hrs after another 4 pills for the 2nd dosage) approximately 12-16 hrs after our unprotexted "sex" (just rubbing and slight intercourse and no ejaculation) and 6 days after the 2nd dosage i got my withdrawal bleeding and 3 weeks later my boyfriend and i had protected sex and it was just 5-10 minutes not even near to climax and no ejaculation, we even checked the condom and there were no damage and leaks, but just for precaution, i still took nordette as ecp 2 hrs after and then again i got my withdrawal bleeding 6 days after the second dosage and the 3 weeks after the protected sex we went to the doctor to get a blood pregnancy test and it came out negative. After 3 weeks, i got a home pregnancy test and it came out negative, but i didn't get my period for the whole month, and for this month my expected date of period is on the 13th because that's when i got my last withdrawal bleeding, but i got my period yesterday, and it was a normal flow, lighter than my usual period because i used to have heavy periods and it the blood was dark (dark red-black). Could this be the effect of Nordette as ECP? and is this my monthly period?

Hi Mike,

Welcome to EmpowHER. If you tests are negative, it's unlikely you will be pregnant. Side effects of any emergency pills are cramping, bleeding, nausea, and changes to your next period. This might be what is causing the changes on your cycles. Hope this was helpful?
