Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Emergency contraception causes hormone changes that disrupts your regular period and can also cause PMS-like symptoms. Therefore, it is only meant to be taken in case of emergencies, not every time you have intercourse.
Therefore if you plan to have regular intercourse I suggest you use a sustainable form of birth control such as condoms and/or monthly birth control pills.
