Frequent use of I pill does affect the body. However, your consumption of the same in the past is not too high to cause a health issue.

If you are not a smoker and have no cardio-vascular disease, then the effects are very less.

Hope this answers your query.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Rajeev Chavda's  Response
Hello Puneet,
Welcome to HCM,
I have read your query, this pill was designed for women for as emergency pregnancy and should only opt for in the situations of unprotected sex, when another method of contraception fails, improper or irregular usage of one’s prescribed birth control method, forced intercourse. It is hormonal based and can cause ovarian damage and menstrual problems, most women who use these pills don’t necessarily experience one, or all, of the symptoms like bleeding between periods, nausea, mood fluctuations, weight fluctuations, including gain or loss, headaches, breast tenderness, blood clots, which is commonly found in women over the age of 35 who smoke habitually and continued use may reduce the chances of future pregnancy. But fact of the matter is that these drugs should only be consumed as an emergency method of contraception, and not as a regularly-used method to avoid getting pregnant. If you are concerned about its side effects and future pregnancy, talk to your clinician about your personal risk. Thanks
