Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.

Emergency pill can alter the menstrual cycle depending on the time of the menstrual cycle when the pill has taken.
If the pill is taken in the first half of the cycle it will prepone the periods and if taken in the second half it will postpone the periods.
Like this it can alter the menstrual cycle and it may take some time for regularization next cycles.
So this delay in periods can be due to the pill or it can also be due to other factors like stress and strain, anemia, thyroid disorders etc.
The chances of pregnancy are less but if you want to completely rule out the possibility let her undergo blood test for pregnancy or ultrasound which can give accurate results.

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,
As it is almost 10 weeks over after unprotected intercourse and as the ultrasound showing no evidence of gestational sac there is no possibility of pregnancy.
Increased endometrial thickness can indicate hormonal imbalance.
So let your friend consult gynecologist and take tablets for withdrawal bleeding.

Hi,

Abdomen can appear bigger due to causes like fat deposition etc.
And also in early pregnancy uterus will remain as pelvic organ and will not be appreciated per abdomen, so you don't worry about it.
As I told the delay in periods can be due to hormonal problems, by taking progesterone tablets with your doctor's advice withdrawal bleeding can be induced.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
