I really don't know how to use it so I followed the instruction I've read on the Internet that it should be taken with 4 tablets every 12 hours. After using it after a month, I didn't experience the so-called 'withdrawal bleeding'.
I'm 3 weeks delayed. I took PT last August 16 and it was negative. I'm confused about the delay of my period and it's making me worried. Am I pregnant or is it the pills? I don't feel any pregnancy symptoms. I took 4 tablets of Nordette-21 every 12 hours and I do it everyday for a month. I just stopped after I took the PT. Am I overdosed? Please help me.
Some women have a few days bleeding with emergency contraception and some dont. It doesnt mean it worked or didnt work so no worries there. It can often delay your next scheduled period too. Give it another week and test again. Be sure to use the very first void (pee) of the morning as it would be the most concentrated and if you are pregnant, it should show up positive. If it is still negative, more than likely it is just the hormones interfering with your cycle. You really should then talk to a Dr to rule out pregnancy for sure and talk about a form of routine birth control, especially if you are sexually active, so you dont have to go through this worry again!
And stop with the Nordette. You are supposed to take 2 doses. Its. No wonder you haven't had a period. That much hormone is not good to put in your body. These meds taken this way aren't something you should keep doing.
