Why can I not use it regularly?
There are many reasons why you should avoid using the morning after pill on a regular basis. For one, the morning after pills effectiveness
is lower than the contraceptive pill or the condom. Having unprotected sex and taking the emergency contraceptive pill is riskier than using contraception.
Unprotected sex also puts you at risk of sexually transmitted diseases. If you have had unprotected sex and you have had to use the morning after pill, you may also need to consider getting tested for STIs.
It is also worth considering that the morning after pill is far more expensive than other contraceptives and using it excessively will cost you more money than taking the pill or buying condoms. You should avoid using it several times in the same month, as this will cause changes in your period and upset your menstrual cycle
