Large Head Sail vs Jib and Main

I have been doing a significant amout of sailing with my 150 Jenny only.

Reason: It is alot easier to get out and put away then the main alone and even more so if I put up the jib and main.

Concern: Is this likely to stress the hull of the boat in inapproate ways?

I sail a 30 + year old Mirage 24.

The boat sails beautifully on the genny in anything up to 25 knots of wind.

But, again is this a problem for her structure?
