Nordette Contraceptive Pill
I would like to inquire if nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) can be used as an emergency contraceptive pill. What is its proper dose?
Also known as oral contraceptives, birth control pills are highly effective oral medications that use hormones to prevent pregnancy.
