Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Loestrin

(ethinyl estradiol & norethindrone acetate) would not be an effective choice for emergency contraception (https://www.

In brief: EC

Although there are at least a dozen types of birth control pills that can be dosed as an emergency contraceptive, I can find no source that includes Loestrin among them. Perhaps someone else has a regimen, but I recommend getting Plan B or the like to ensure you get the maximum benefit.
