Morning AFter Pill
I would like to know how safe the morning after pill is ? My boyfrined and I have recently started having intercourse and we are using condoms. About a month and a half ago the condom broke and so I got the morning after pill just for incase as I am not on any birth control.
On Saturday the same thing happened and so I have taken it again. I heard that you can only take it a certain number of time in your life.
I am going to get the pill but would like ot know what damage the morning after pill can do...

Toni, you can take it when the need arises, but there is just slightly more oestrogen in a whole packet of the newer pills like Minesse® or Mirelle® than in the 4 morning after pills. I’m fairly sure that you did no permanent damage though. Good luck.
