No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about emergency contraceptive pill.

Following is my reply:

1) It is not advisable to take the emergency contraceptive pill 3 times in a month.

2) This would lead to irregular periods and delayed periods which will make you get confused with pregnancy.

3) There is no chance of pregnancy. Dont worry about it.

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.
