Morning after pill dangerous?

Is it true that if you' ve taken the morning after pill too many times, that you will not be able to fall pregnant ever?

Dear BB
No this is not true, but taking the morning after pill as contraception is
a. Less effective than normal contraceptives ( 75% vs 99%)
b. Causes menstrual irregularities and increase risk of breast cancer due to high esterogen levels
So it should only be used as emergency contraception
