Is I-pill safe to take ?

In the television there is colorful adverti on I pill, an emergency contraception pill. it is an hormonal pill, is it safe to use these hormonal pills indiscriminately. what if people stop using other methods and start using the i pill "every time", and what if the "every time" is more than once a day?

Too much of anything is bad. that whats the wise people say. I Pill is emergency contraceprtive pill, to be taken if contraceptive precaution not taken. not like to use it as alternate precaution. if "every time" is more than once a day, i gues you should go for regular birth control pills or the shots.

I-pill should be taken once in a while, it should not be taken on regualr basis. It is a hormonal preparation at high dose. It may cause some period problem if you take it regularly
