I had unprotected sex on Oct. 9 which was nine days after my period. I took nordette ecp (4 doses the next morning at 6am and another 4 doses 12 hrs later at 6pm). I didn't experience any withdrawal bleeding or have my period. On Oct.29 I had unprotected sex again and took nordette ecp again 6hrs latr. Then I had unprotected sex days later on Nov. 2 and took nordette ecp 2hrs later. I'm so stupid! I'm PRAYING I DNT GET PREGNANT... I haven't experienced any withdrawal bleeding... but I've been super dizzy, my boobs are tender and cramps every now and then. I have a regular 30-32day cycle.
Your symptoms are probably from all the hormones. You aren't supposed to use ecps like that. They are for emergencies not birth control. Why aren't you on birth control? You keep having unprotected sex you will end up pregnant.
Ecps aren't as effective as regular birth control. I'm sure they are why your period is late too.
Usually If you fall on your fertile days which is 12-16 days from your Last mens period. Pray hard that your ECP works for you. Since ECP doesnt usually works if you've already ovulated. I mean it lower the effectiveness of ECP. Been there my dear. And try to use Birth Control if you intend to continue in having unprotected sex.
