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

No to sleepy.: Most of the reversible methods of contraception available today offer a prompt return of fertility after discontinuation. After stopping the pill, a woman may expect an average delay in return to fertility of 3 to 6 months. If you are taking OCPs and feel tired, non-motivated and less interested in sex than you used to be, you might be experiencing low testosterone. It does not cause sleepiness. ...Read more
