Is i-pill (contraceptive pill)taken for 5 times can be a reason for forming a chocolate cyst and will it prevent future pregnancy or any problem for gettig prengnant in future.


Hi Hairu,

The i-Pill is one of the brand names for the one-dose, progestin-only emergency contraceptive pill. There is no evidence that this pill causes endometriosis or chocolate cyst on the ovary, but it can definitely cause side effects.

It is not possible to predict how a women will respond to the i-Pill on a long term bases because each woman is different.

Some women have absolutely no problem, while others begin a slow road to hormonal problems after taking this medication.

If taken many times, it does not necessarily prevent women from getting pregnant but can cause hormonal imbalance and decrease ovulation rate. So, the effect can be indirect and over time based on age and medical history.

Progestins are synthetic progesterone that inhibit normal progesterone production and compete for progesterone receptors in the ovaries. This blocks the body’s own progesterone causing a miscarriage.

The difference between natural progesterone made by the body and synthetic progestin is that is essential to maintain and support a healthy pregnancy while progestin, even in small amounts, is contraindicated during pregnancy because it can cause birth defects.

If you want to get pregnant and have taken i-Pill consider doing a fertility cleanse before trying to conceive.

If you have chocolate cyst, consider doing self-fertility massage and castor oil therapy to help decrease the negative effects of endometriosis on the body.

Fertility Blessings!
