I was on Nordette then Oralcon and now back on Nordette (clinics run out of stock) but I have been having my period on and off for 2 weeks now. Could the switch be the cause?

I dont think it is the same. I was on nordette, and use to get them from the pharmacy because i didnt have time to go to the clinic, because of my job. After buying from them for about 8 months, i was told that i needed a doctors prescription to get every month. Got one and carried on, but found it strange that i needed a certificate for contraception all of a sudden. And i also found a difference in the ones we get from the clinic and the ones we buy from the pharmacy. Nurses came to my work place an i got some from them, but i couldnt take them because it made me sick. I went to the clinic when i was on leave and they gave me oralcon, not the same as nordette. also made me feel sick. And why may i ask do we need a doctors certificate for nordette. We were getting it without one all this time. If oralcon is the same why are we told that we must pay if we want to stay on nordette.

Is Oralcon contraceptive the same as Nordette? I have been using Nordette for 10 years and today the clinic supplied me with Oralcon and says it is just a different supplier. I have noticed a change from yellow tablets to white tablets.
