Hi doctor,

I am 18 years old and I took five I-pills within two months and I am not getting periods. The last I-pill I took was before two days. Will it affect me in future while having a baby? Does it affect my fertility? Please answer me as soon as possible.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

While I-pill is a good emergency contraceptive, it is an emergency contraceptive. Taking five in two months is way too much. Please stick to routine contraceptives like pills and condoms and use I-pill sparingly. Now having five I-pills in two months will not have any long-term effect. It will not make you infertile. But it will lead to menstrual irregularities which might last for 3 to 4 months.
