Nordette (28), a combination of levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol, is an oral contraceptive used to prevent pregnancy in sexually active women.
This progestin and estrogen combination is taken daily in tablet form. For best results, take your pill at approximately the same time everyday.
Nordette works by stopping the development of the egg in a womans body. If the egg doesnt fully develop, it cant accept sperm and fertilization is then prevented.
Common side effects users may experience when taking Nordette include abdominal cramping, bloating, breast tenderness or pain, dizziness, nausea and swollen ankles or feet. If the side effects do not go away or appear to be getting progressively worse, contact your doctor for assistance.
Occasionally, Nordette may be prescribed to treat menopausal symptoms or to regulate a womans menstrual cycle.
