Morning After Pill in the Philippines (Nordette Method)

nordette-levonorgestrel-pills-philippines

So nobody told me the morning after pill isn’t sold in the Philippines ūüėÄ As long time blog readers will know I mostly set up a home base in Thailand and go to PI¬†for visa runs.

In Thailand you can buy the morning after pill over the counter, ‘Madonna’ or ‘Postinor’ brands, costs 40 baht ($1.13) for the box of 2 pills. The girl takes one as¬†soon as possible, and the next 12 hours later. I’ve had many a ThaiCupid or Thaifriendly girl just tell me it’s ok just cum inside me, I’ll ‘gin yaa’. Or be totally relaxed about it in the case of accidents.

On my last¬†trip to Philippines I accidently creampie’d a Cebu Gogo girl. When I asked her where the nearest pharmacy was to buy the pill she replied ‘oh no, that’s like killing the baby’. Uwotm8?

I explained how there’s no baby yet and all it does is make your period come, but she wouldn’t listen and got visibly irritated. I dropped the conversation and made sure I finished outside next time. I kept in touch and luckily she didn’t get pregnant.

On this latest trip I did the same thing with an Angeles City freelancer I got in contact with on Pinalove.

After a night out at HISO we banged in the hot tub at my¬†ABC hotel¬†suite (more on that later) and I didn’t pull out in time as she was riding me on top. It was late at night so I said I’d go to the pharmacy first thing in the morning. She didn’t really react, just vaguely mumbled something in Tagalog.

Only Country in Asia to Ban the Morning After Pill

So while she’s sleeping I start Googling for the brand name I need to buy and to my shock see that the Philippines government banned the morning after pill in 2002¬†because it ’causes an abortion’. Uwotm8?

Apparently a pro-life NGO called the Abay Pamilya foundation, and other Philippines medical professionals, conducted ‘extensive studies’, and found that the morning after pill inhibits the implantation of the already fertilised ovum. So they consider it abortive.

Abortion is available in Thailand (although technically not legal) at places like the Sukhuvmit Soi 12 clinic and one major hospital, and fully legal in Vietnam. But it’s been illegal in the Philippines since 1987.

Add in¬†Catholicism and it’s ‘every Child is a gift from God’ mantra, and the Philippines is the only country in Asia to make¬†the morning after pill illegal too.

Dante wrote about dumb laws in the Philippines before but this one takes the cake. There’s no way the ovum is already fertilised if you take the morning after pill immediately.

Nordette – Improvised Morning After Pill

Luckily I quickly found some online blogs from smart Filipina women (to be fair many are very smart) and threads on the sexpat monger forums (thanks PI Addicts) saying there was a solution.

It turns out the morning after pill in legal countries is just a strong dose (2 – 4 times) of the regular contraceptive pill, the ones girls take each day of the month. Learn something new every day.

The Philippines hasn’t outlawed the regular contraceptive pill, which it sells under the brand name ‘Nordette’.

So the blogs and forum threads explained that what you need to do is simply have the girl take 4 pills of Nordette asap after the sex, and then 4 more 12 hours later. This would then have the same effect as taking the morning after pill in any other country.

Angeles City Pharmacy

So at 9am while the girl was sleeping I headed out asked the security guards (very helpful in the Philippines) where the nearest pharmacy is.

You have to turn right out of ABC hotel and at the first right turn you’ll see a big red H-Care Pharmacy sign across the road at the junction.

While I was there I decided to ask for the morning after pill anyway to see if what I’d read online was true. It was a bit embarrassing but I figured I’m metres away from a hooker street in the middle of a hooker city so she probably gets this question all the time.

She awkwardly said no, we don’t sell it. I asked if it’s available anywhere in the Philippines. No again. I said thanks and asked for Nordette from a different sales clerk. It was under¬†200 pesos. The guy put it in a brown paper bag and I was on my way.

How to Take Nordette for Emergency Contraception

So what I’d read online is you look at the order of pills, the days are marked clockwise from top left to bottom left, 21 pills in total.

The last 7 pills are placebo so you can throw those away to avoid confusion (the bottom left seven). You’re left with 14 pills.

Have the girl take 4 pills from the remaining ones, and 4 more 12 hours later. 8 pills total. Keep the rest for the next time you forget to pull out.

Pinays and Pills

So I patiently waited for my Pinalove girl to wake up and presented her 4 pills in a glass of water.

Ano? What’s that?¬†

The pill, remember last night I said I’d buy it.¬†

She shook her head, turned over and went back to sleep.

During my reading I’d found out contraceptive pills in the Philippines are very rough on the girls, so¬†a lot of¬†Pinays don’t want to take them. I was surprised because Thai girlfriend’s that took the pill have told me they don’t experience bad side effects, only good ones – their periods become lighter and more regular.

Apparently not the case for brands in the Philippines. There’s also the religious aspect mentioned earlier. No wonder so many Pinays have shat out a kid by 21.

I’ve also heard stories of Filipina girls trying to get guys to cum inside them so they can be single mothers. Some current Pinay mothers¬†have actually told me they enjoy raising a child alone without a guy around.

I also read a story on PI Addicts about a Pinay saying ‘it’s in God’s hands now’ when the guy offered to buy Nordette. So he grinded it up into her drink ūüėÄ

Am I a Father?

Luckily my girl said her last menstruation cycle was less than a week ago so I should be ok. She wasn’t anywhere near ovulation time. Sperm can apparently survive 7 days inside the womb though… at least I’d already barfined a girl earlier that day so there wasn’t much cum.

Anyway I will definitely be more careful next time. And I’m bringing the morning after pill over on the plane next time from Thailand… I trust that a bit more than the Nordette home remedy.

    enjoy your “can i tell you?” message in a month

    Well that’s some scary ignorance right there. You can always go the breakfast in bed approach and put it in the food, but that’s sleazy as hell and probably illegal.

  3. Who says:

    Just take papaya seeds it’s a natural male contraceptive. Not 100% effective but… that combined with female contraceptive you should be in great shape.

    Why don’t you guys get a vasectomy?

    Also, way to leave us hanging about the hot tub…

      I feel like explaining what that is to most SE Asian working girls is going to be a bit of a hassle, they won’t believe me (should they?). So they’ll want me to bust outside anyway / wrap up / take whatever option they would’ve done anyway, so there’s no difference.

      Then as for non working girls a lot of them will like you less knowing you’ve done that to yourself, it could affect dating. I can imagine a lot of Asian girls being turned off by a guy who can never give them a child (putting your sperm on ice isn’t very proven, it can degrade). A lot of the times girls bang us, they’re hoping one day we’ll fall in love and start a family, even though we tell them from the start we just want friends with benefits and don’t lead them on, they are happy to take the gamble. But if they know from the start you’ve had a vasectomy then there’s nothing to gamble on.

      Even if they don’t want kids either, they may be a bit weirded out by it. I can imagine them thinking it kinda looks like you’ve done it just so you can creampie hundreds of chicks on one night stands, or because you don’t like condoms, or some other weird reason. I’d rather just try to remember to pull out and cum on their tits than answer tons of questions and spend hours explaining.

      And paying money for a something with a 0.1% failure rate… or just google the possible pain, side effects, and complications. Lots of horror stories online.

      And at least for Thailand I know girls that like taking the pill as it makes their menstruation less painful, more regular, less blood, and anecdotally they tell me it can clear up acne / whiten the face (I just nod and smile lol).

      And there’s no way we can predict what we’ll want in later life, I may want kids at say 50 years old. Or at least want to give a girl a family, to make her happy, while I’m a detached cheating father with a bunch of mistresses.

      Plus quite a few Thai working girls get a once a month injection, it’s only 150 baht. No need to rely on them remembering to take the pill each day.

      And… if you really like creampie’ing you can still do that with the withdrawal method, timing it around the ovulation cycle

      And… I guess I’m eating Papaya seed smoothies on the regular now as per the comment above

    she replied ‚Äėoh no, that‚Äôs like killing the baby‚Äô. Uwotm8?

    LOL

  6. Hen says:

    Only in the Philippines? Well, good luck finding such pills in Indonesia. Many pharmacies won’t even sell condoms to people they think are not married.

  7. -Cam says:

    Why don’t you guys get vasectomies? You don’t seem like the have a kid type and if you change your mind there are still options to reverse it.

  8. kick2dante kick2dante says:

    jspill scared me out of it saying sometimes doctors mess up, and SEA doctors arent the greatest

  9. Eddie says:

    jspill , great article… can you explain more about the ovulation cycle to avoid pregnancy.

    • jspill jspill says:

      Well in theory a girl can only get pregnant over about a 2 day period in the middle of her cycle (2 weeks after her period stops, and 2 weeks before her next period comes). But sperm can live in the pussy a few days so people call it a week to be on the safe side.

      So you want to only creampie her roughly the week after her period stops, and the week before her period comes. But to be even safer you might want to reduce that a bit, as she might have an irregular period, and you can’t really trust a girl to give you an accurate date as to when her last period was

      So if her period is on the last day of the month, you could nut inside her from around the 25th – 5th, or about 10 days of the month. That’s conservative, some people will creampie 20 days of the month, but that’s exactly measuring the period dates on a calendar, and/or using a machine that takes the girl’s temperature.

      • kick2dante kick2dante says:

        day 1-5 of her cycle she is bleeding, days 6-9 you are relatively safe but not 100%, days 10-21 she is fertile, days 22-28 you should be 100% safe assuming she has a normal 28 day cycle

        that is the easiest way to break it down, never heard jspills 2 day thing but if you google ‘fertility cycle’ you can see hundreds of charts/graphs showing days 10-20 being the fertile time

      • jspill jspill says:

        The 2 day thing is how long the egg lives for, more like 12-24 hours but girls can release two eggs, so up to 48 hours.

        “A human egg can only survive 12-24 hours after being released from the ovary, and thus the only reason women are considered fertile for longer than 24 hours (or 48 hours in the case of a multiple ovulation) is because sperm can live for up to five days if fertile quality cervical fluid is present.”
