Emergency contraceptive pills like I pill does not interfere with pain killers.
Painkillers will not interfere with efficacy of I pill.
Please understand that failure rate of I pill varies between 16-42% depending on the time elapsed between sex and intake of tablet.
Please do a pregnancy test if you miss the cycles.
The next periods can be earlier /later /longer/or heavier.
Please use regular contraception and dont use I pills often.
