Brief Answer:
I-pill does not cause infertility.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
Ipill is an emergency contraceptive and is nothing but a drug called levanogesterel which belongs to levanorgestrel. It is similar to female sex hormone progesterone.
Side effects of ipill are very minimal. Moreover ipill does not cause infertility. In your case your partner had ipill only twice, so chances for side effects are very very minimal. So getting pregnant won’t be an issue in your case.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
Thanks
