My Boyfriend and I had unprotected "sex" (no penetration, just rubbing) last April 14, 2014. Approximately 12 hours after the did, i took Nordette as ECP ( 4 pills and 12 hrs after 4 pills again). 6 days after the 2nd dosage i got my withdrawal bleeding not too heavy nor light and it lasted about 2 days. 15 days after the deed, i went to the doctor and asked for a blood pregnancy test and it came out negative and i also took a Home pregnancy test 3 weeks (May 6, 2014) after the deed and it came out negative also; but on the same day (May 6, 2014) i had sex with my boyfriend, and it was protected, we even checked the condom (no leaks or damage) and i took Nordette as ECP again (the same day) just for precautions. Now, im experiencing abdominal and increase of vaginal discharge. Im getting paranoid again, what are the effects of nordette as ECP on my body?

Hi! I just want to share my experience with this.
It was first time so the day after we've done it and when I realized the possible consequence..I was really nervous..It was so stupid because we did not consider everything beforehand
So please, before doing it make sure you have a plan..waiting for your menses will kill you!!
Anyway, this is what happened
We first did it with a condom but for the 3rd time there was none and he only used withdrawal
Take note also that we did it on my safe day
So the day after, I search the net then found out this alternative..unfortunately for me..I went to 6 drugstores but they are not selling nordette and so I bought trust pills instead
I am not sure if it worked
My menstruation was supposed to be 2 days ago(I am on my first day now..such a relief) and I am not sure if the delay was due to the pills I took or because I was so stressed thinking about it
Note: I did not have any side effects for taking the 4-4 pills nor the withdrawal bleeding
My advice for you girl is to consider everything first..remember..you will be the one carrying the baby
So don't depend too much on the guy to make sure you will not get pregnant but do your own necessary precautions to prevent
I've waited 8 days for my menses..and it was killing me
I don't know how to tell my parents about it if in case
They will be disappointed..they won't trust me anymore
And mind you..I am already 22
Well, my real advice is..if you really..I mean REALLY want to do it..just make sure you are in control of everything and if you are in doubt..just don't do it
I don't think I can go through this again
I'll probably have sex again when turn 30 hahaha

Hi guys, I really need your help. So I took nordette as an ecp last Feb 22 and then another dose on the 25th. I know it should not be that way because of the high dosage of hormones. But anyway, I had my bleeding last March 3 and I still had a little spotting today (March 6). Me and my boyfriend had protected sex yesterday (March 5) but the condom broke. Quick disclaimer: he never released inside me.

I'm somewhat freaking out if I should take nordette again since apparently, I'm fertile (according to my period calendar).

So I kind of need your help guys. I really am anxious.

Hello - i took nordette (4 pills after the deed and another 4 pills exactly 12 hours after the first dose) 3 days after i am experiencing light bleeding. It was brownish at first but turned reddish like a period. But i know it is not my period because it is so light than my normal previous periods. Too light that i only use a pantiliner, no need for a napkin. I am regular. 29 day cycle. Never missed a period in my life. Lmo was jan 11,2017. Expected due of my next mens is feb 9, 2017 but on feb 8 i started to have this slight bleeding. Still experiencing it now. Don't know what this means. Afraid it might be implantation bleeding or something. If there's someone who had the same experience after taking nordette can you please share your story? Also, the deed was done feb4 @ around 2. At 7pm the same day i took the first dose and feb 5 the second dose @ exactly 7 am. Need your insights. Thanks!

@anony143. I got the bleeding feb 8 up until feb 12. It was light on feb 8 to 9. Moderate on feb 10 to 11. And then light again on feb 12 and then stopped. Last feb 16 i took a pregnancy test (morning pee) and it was negative. I actually went to my OBGYN the same day i took the pt because i was sooo anxious and i really really want to have a professional doctor tell me in my face that i am pregnant or not pregnant. I wanted to have my blood drawn to test for serum hcg. Doctor opted to do a TVS on me instead. She stated she is sure that i am not pregnant because the uprotected deed happened during my non fertile days (since i am reg 28 day cycle) and also due to the fact that i took pills as an ecp. But i still proceeded with the tvs so i will know (hehe anxiety got into me really bad). After the procedure, she confirmed that i am not pregnant because my uterus does not have a thick lining that you would see in women who are on their early stage of pregnancy. She also advised me that it is proliferating meaning within this week i am fertile and have a high chance of getting pregnant. I am just sharing this one to give you guys an update on my experience with taking nordette as ecp. I was sooo relieved when the doctor told me face to face that i am not pregnant.

i took nordette as ECP also, 4 pills at 10 am and another 4 pills after 12hrs.. i hadn't experience any harsh side effects, just being sleepy.. and after 8 days, i had my withdrawal bleeding for 4days.. and on the 4th day, we had protected sex but sadly, the condom broke so i took NORDETTE 7am on the next day.. on my 2nd dose, i started to feel nausea, a little abdomenal cramps and back aches.. on the next day i had LBM. i dont know if it's part of the side effects but i did experience this.. now, i am waiting for the next 44 days if im pregnant or not.. hopefully, not yet.. im so not yet prepared to become one..
