26 year-old woman is unable to stop Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control pills after 8 yrs of use, due to heavy vaginal bleeding upon Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) discontinuation.....?

What are goals?: The answer depends on your long term goals. If you do not want more children then an endometrial ablation is a good option. Assuming you do want more children then other options can be considered. Testing for PCOS and hypothyroidism could be done. Since you are missing periods followed by heavy bleeding PCOS seems likely. A sonohystogram should be done to see if a polyp or submucosal fibroid is present. If present then these can be surgically removed as an outpatient. If pregnancy is desired later on but not now a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD could be a great option. This often stops bleeding. If you are satisfied with the pill you could just continue ...Read more

Started nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) 21 and had taken it as an ecp on the 6th day, and continued on taking it individually on the next 4 days. Am I overdosed?

No: You should be fine. When birth control pills first came out they were doses 3 times or more the dose then we use today. So, while the day you doubled up you may have had nausea or headache, the hormone levels drop within 24 hours, That's why its ok to resume the regular dose the next day. ...Read more

Had sex condom on, she used ecp after 3 days (nordette) overdosed took another set coz she forgot instructions. Pregnant? Pregnancy chances?

Unlikely: People who have sex while using condoms properly do not get pregnant except rarely; regardless of what else is happening, or what hormone pills are being taken or not taken. If worried, one can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. Tests are very accurate, inexpensive to buy, and are sold in stores everywhere. ...Read more

Had sex condom on, she used ecp after 3 days (nordette) overdosed took another set coz she forgot instructions. Pregnant? Pregnancy chances? 98

Sex with condom: If you had sex with a condom then the chances of pregnancy are very very low assuming it was used correctly. I do not know what you mean by overdosing on emergency contraception or forgetting the dose so I can not comment on that. If condoms were used the ECP was not needed. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. ...Read more
