In brief: You don't

Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) is not typically used as an emergency contraceptive.
Contact you doctor to discuss options or consider Plan B over the counter instead.

In brief: Agree w Dr. Yaklic

Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) would not be effective as an emergency contraceptive.
Best to just use an actual ECP. This reference chart shows which oral contraceptives can be used for emergency contraception and at what doses. http://ec.princeton.edu/questions/dose.html#dose
