Thanks for posting your query.
Side effects of emergency contraceptives include nausea and vomitings. You might also get a headache, feel tired or dizzy, have some lower abdominal pain, or find your breasts are more tender than usual. All these effects subside in a week or two.
You can use the emergency pill as many times as you need to and more than once in any one menstrual cycle, but it shouldn't be used instead of regular contraception. Repeated use of the ECP may cause your menstrual cycle to change. You may have a shorter/longer cycle and have a heavier/lighter period than normal.
Its long term effect on fertility and conception is not yet proven but some studies do suggest that it can cause polycystic ovaries leading to difficulty in ovulation.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
