Menstrual flow less than usual. Had consumed many i-pills in the past. Am I safe?

Hi, I am 27 years old unmarried female. I have been in physical relationship for past two years. i have consumed i- pill for 9 times during these times. My menstrual cycle is regular and i have not faced any problems due to my consumption of the pills. Only delayed and low periods were there for a time or two. But for past two months the flow is less comparatively and it s been 3/4 months since i last took the pill. Pl advice if everything is alright with me? Will i face any pregnancy related problem in my future? Also, let me know is it safe to have these emergency pills?

Emergency contraceptive pills are meant to be used once or twice per year for the real emergencies and are not to be considered a replacement for regular contraception. You are lucky not to have gross hormone imbalances; these pills are known to cause severe hormone disturbances in many users leading to fertility problems in future. So long as you continue to have regular ovulatory cycles, you need not worry about the reduced flow. Slight variations often do happen with increasing age. Please have a proper gynecological evaluation if you suspect hormone imbalance. Hope this helps.
