Hi,
Thanks for the query.

According to your description there is less possibility for pregnancy.
And also as she took i pill within 3 hours possibly it can give complete protection.
I pill can cause side effects like menstrual irregularities, bloating sensation of the abdomen, breast tenderness etc.
It can alter the menstrual cycle depending on the period of the menstrual cycle when she took it.

Better to avoid frequent use of emergency pills and choose some regular method.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

Hi,

Menstrual cycle is the monthly cycle during which menstruation and regeneration of endometrium etc occurs.
In case of 28 days cycle first 14 days will be follicular phase and next 14 days are luteal phase.
As according to her periods your girl friend took the i pill in the first half of the cycle, so there is possibility for preponement of periods.
Pregnancy test kit cannot detect pregnancy this much early.
Possibly she will get her periods soon, if not wait till her expected date of periods and if she miss the date go for blood test for pregnancy which will rule out the possibility.
Side effects may not be seen in all the women, so don't worry about it.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
