Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

I-PILL is a hormonal preparation. It contains Levonorgestrel.

It can delay/prevent ovulation.

Menstrual period occurs 14 days after ovulation.

If ovulation is delayed, period will also get delayed.

In your case chances of conception are negligible.

Pregnancy test should be done at least a week after due date.

These tests are generally accurate if done sufficient time after conception.

As per information provided by you, there should be no chance of pregnancy.

If you require further clarification, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,

Hi,

Welcome again,

Though it is not 100% effective.

But you had sex on 6th day of period and it is generally safe.

Six days after bleeding, there was a withdrawal bleeding of 3 days duration also.

Thus, chance of conception is almost negligible.

If there is no ovulation during this menstrual cycle, it can be delayed for 28 days.

As per test report also, chance of conception is not present.

In case of no period, you can get test repeated after a week.

If you require further clarification, please feel free to ask.

Hi,

Welcome again,

As I have already told you that I-pill, if taken prior to ovulation, can prevent ovulation and thus period can be delayed for 28 days.

On the basis of information provided by you, I can say that you should not worry as chances of pregnancy in your case are very very poor.

If you require further clarification, please feel free to ask. If you don't require further clarification, can close the discussion by accepting the answer and rating it.
