On levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). 15/30 if 1 pill missed on 4th day of that pack, but made up. Should a pregnancy test be taken even if "period" came at right time?

Pregnant on OCP. It is possible that you may be pregnant if you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills. Missing only a single pill and making it up promptly makes it less likely. Still, checking a pregnancy test won't do much harm and you can see your doctor if you are pregnant. Read more...

If you took 1 levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). 15/30 pill 16 hours passed time, condom broke that day, 3 weeks later normal "period" at proper time. Any need to take test?

Probably ok. You didn't technically missed your pill and even though it was late, you were correct in taking it anyway. However, since even perfect birth control is only 95-96% effective it certainly wouldn't be a bad idea to check a urine pregnancy test just to reassure yourself. Don't forget many providers will give emergency birth control for a broken condom. If it happens again consider making the call. Read more...

Must I drink nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) same time and if I miss it and after three hours can I still take it?

Timing birth control. Birth control pills should ideally be taken at the same time every day. Combination pills consisting of both an estrogen & progestin allow for some leeway while you can't be more than 3hrs late w/progestin-only pills.
