Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, emergency contraceptions have side effects of making you have early period or late period. If you use it frequently, it can cause irregular periods.

Missed period has many multifactorial causes other than pregnancy, including:

  • Emotional stress
  • Body weight too light or too heavy
  • Exercising too much
  • Problems with the ovary such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Get through that time of the month comfortably
