Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should have had the protection from your regular birth control pills if you have been regular in taking them for last 2 months (or if you have had 1 withdrawal bleeding after completing a pill pack and have started the new pill pack at the scheduled time). If you have taken the Nordette emergency contraception, taking 4 pills within 120 hours of the unprotected sexual contact and 4 pills after 12 hours, you should be able to prevent pregnancy (provided you avoid further unprotected sexual contact after this until you get your periods/withdrawal bleeding. Since these contain high dosages of hormones, these can affect your normal hormonal and period pattern causing new symptoms and delay in periods. Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding which can be delayed. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy.
Take care.
