Too many contraceptives!!
Dear Doc

I've started taking birthcontrol (triphasal) when I was 17 and stayed on it for about 3 years. I then went off it and had unprotected sex and by doing so, used the moring after pill 3 times (big mistake). I'm now married and have gone back on triphasal for 2 and a half years. Will this affect me falling pregnant in future.

No there will be no longterm effect on your ability to fall prergnant when you stop the Pill.
