Hello and thanks for your query.

I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.

No, ipill cannot be detected by ultrasound scan.
It is a hormone which enters the blood from the gut to reach its target sites like any other tablet.

Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something useful to help you and I shall be glad to answer any further apprehensions.

Thanks for the query.

The reported side effects of levonorgestrel (Active ingredient of ipill) are:

Nausea - avoid oily/strong aromatic foods
vomiting - eat in regular intervals rather than large meals
headache - avoid tv/loud music/outdoor noise
lower abdominal pain - drink lot of water
breasts tenderness - do not use analgesics
vaginal bleeding - nothing needed. Will stop.

i-pill might also cause your next period early or later than normal - if more than a week, you should go in for a pregnancy test and contact your doctor.

Wishing you good health.
