Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Answers to your queries is as following:-

(i) Every drug has some side effects and severity varies from person to person.

(ii) In case you develop any serious side effect, please consult a doctor.

(iii) Chance of pregnancy is negligible.

(iv) As these are hormonal pills, its frequent use can damage ovaries and can cause menstrual problems. Continuous use can reduce future chance of pregnancy.

(v)For contraception many methods are available.
You should consult a doctor/Gynecologist to discuss various methods available so that she can suggest most suitable method for you as per your acceptance.

If you have further query,please feel free to ask.

Hi Doctor XXXXXXX

Thanks for your reply.
I will definitely stop using i-pill going forward. But,
- As i have already asked, I have already taken 3 i pills in a duration of 5 months. As of now is there any chance of ovary damage or infertility? Please answer, as this question created tension for me.
- And, I have consulted a doctor regarding the contraception method, and according to the doctor using condoms is the only method for my situation (as i am not planing for kids at least for 2-3 years) So is the condoms only best solution? If yes, its troubling me. Please suggest any alternate method.

Hi,

Welcome again,

It can harm, doesn't mean that it will harm in every case.

3 I-pills in 5 months are not expected to harm, but this time you have taken 3 tablets of regesterone also for 3 days.

I-pill should be used for contraception in emergency only.

Instead using condom you can try Diaphragm as barrier method. or,

You can try Calender based methods like rhythm and standard days method. or,

You can use fertility monitors like Gynecologist and select a method which suits you.

If you have further query,please feel free to ask.
