Only just passing through, but here are the directions for using your brand as EC from the Princeton EC site:

Microgynon-30 is a Progestin-Estrogen Combined Oral Contraceptive Used for EC. Note that many combined pill packs have reminder pills with no hormones at the end; only the active pills can be used as emergency contraception. Check your package insert to determine which are the active pills.

You take 4 pills within 120 hours after unprotected sex and 4 more pills 12 hours later. Each dose contains 0.6 mg of levonorgestrel and 120 mg of ethinyl estradiol.
