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

I'm 23 year old male and I recently started having trouble cumming. I recently started having sex for the first time like 2 months ago. before that I used to cum a lot more, it was thicker, and it would shot out. now its thin, clear, and very little just drips out. it seems like its just pre-cum cause of how little come out. I masturbate a lot but before I start having sex it was all normal no matter how much I did it I would cum every time and my normal amount. one time she was doing oral and I came a lot, even shot pretty far but it was clear and haven't done it since. sometimes we get finished without me cumming and I masturbate almost right after and I cum pretty well but its still clear. two or three weeks before I started having sex, I started taking these pills to increase blood flow to your penis and make you harder longer. I was also doing penis exercises to increase size 3 times a week but stopped after first time I had sex cause she already liked the size, so I figured I didn't need it. I was cumming normal even when I was doing the exercises, when I masturbated but not since I started having sex and stopped the exercises. Still taking the pills, figure I still want to last longer and be harder. The pills seem to work cause I do get hard a lot more often and more easily. Not sure if its harder though, never really paid attention to that but it doesn‘t seem less hard then before. I was able to cum like normal when I was doing the exercises for those two or three week but could I have done permanent damage? If so why would it start happening only after I stopped and started having sex? Could the increased blood flow from the pills be the problem? Should I stop taking the pills or maybe stop masturbating ? Is it more serous?

Hi, for the past 5 yrs ive been on the contreception pill microgynon. Ive suffered from a high pulse rate and palpitations ever since. I never thought that the pill can make this happen untill i googled it. My doctor never mentioned that it could so for the past yr ive been having regular ECGs because ive been worried about my heart rate and its getting worse. Also people say im a very anxiuos person, can this all be because of the pill? Going to see my gp tomorow again because of my heart rate, shall i mention this to him?
