Side effect of I-pill

If a girl consumes 4-5 pills at different times before marriage, will she be less likely to become pregnant in the future? Will she be able to get pregnant in the future ?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thank you for your question.  Always remember to ask your doctor for confirmation of information. I assume I pill is emergency contraceptive.  I pills and emergency contraceptive in general is a big dose of hormones and with I pill in particular, a big dose of progesterone.  When taken within 3 days after the sexual episode someone is worried about, it disrupts the hormone balance so that a pregnancy won't happen.  It's not great to take too much just because it messes up your hormones and period.  Does that last forever?  No.  Usually around 2 to 3 months post pill.  There is no reason why a girl would have trouble getting pregnant even if she at one time overused emergency contraception. She just needs to have a regular period again.  Hope that answers your question.

I just want to tag on here that it should not affect her in getting pregnant.  Lasting effects are not common past the hormones working their way out of a woman's system.  So, no worries.  Is this your girlfriend you are talking about?
