Thanks for your query.
Firstly, it is not advisable to consume I pill so frequently and casually.
They tend to alter and mess up your normal menstrual cycle.
The i pill is the most probably reason for your earlier period.
The i pill, specially when taken within 3 hours, is effective, but no method is 100 % sure.
I would advise you to test for a pregnancy, once you go past the date of your last expected period.
That is, after another 7 - 10 days, though the possibility is almost nil.
Please switch over to a reliable method of contraception in the future.
take care.

Thanks for the query.
As you took the i pill within time possibly that can give protection.
The irregularity in periods you are experiencing could be side effect of the emergency pills.
You should not use these pills frequently.
There should be at-least two months gap between one pill and other pill.
Otherwise you can have short term and long term side effects of the pill.

Take care.
