Unprotected sex, took i-pills. Is it harmful?

Me and my wife had unprotected sex and she took i-pills, its a emergency contraception pill, to avoid pregnancy. But recently I came to know that these pills are harmful, and has severe side effects. My wife is 20 years old and she took 12 pills in 10 months. Please tell me whether its really harmful and what can happen to her, what symptoms should I notice, and what should I do now?

OBGYN 's  Response
i-pills have some minor side effects which occur within the few days following its intake. They do not affect future fertility or menstrual cycles.

In your scenario it would be ideal to use contraception. i-pill is not a contraceptive pill and is less effective than contraceptive pill or intrauterine devises in preventing pregnancy.
Do consult your family physician.
