Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Emergency pill can alter the menstrual periods depending the period of menstrual cycle when the pill was taken.
As she took the pill in the second half of the cycle there is possibility that the pill might have postponed her periods.
And also in case of regular periods the ovulation will not usually occur in the ending of the month, so the possibility of pregnancy is less.
It is not good to use the i pills repeatedly as that can lead to side effects.

Better to use some regular method of contraception.
She may possibly get her periods after few days.
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,

The chance of pregnancy is less as I told previously.
But if she had any unprotected intercourse before these two episodes, like around her ovulatory period then the possibility cannot be ruled out.
If there was only two acts of intercourse around premenstrual period and if she took the i pills after the acts, the chance of pregnancy is very less.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
