Thanks for the query.

Let me first explain you in brief about normal menstrual cycle of female, to make things easier for you to understand.

Normally in 28 days of cycle the ovulation taken place in middle of cycle on about 14th day. Days from 7th to 21th are considered fertile days of period and any act during this days can lead to pregnancy.

In your case you had relations on 3rd day of her cycle, so practically there are very low probabilities of pregnancy if her cycles are regular.

Apart from this, she had an I pill which is an emergency contraceptive pill with in 72 hours of the act, this pill is 85% effective when taken within 6 hrs of sexual intercourse.

In my opinion there is very low probability of pregnancy and as I pill causes menstrual irregularities like excessive bleeding. It would be better to wait for few more days that is till 6th XXXXXXX for periods. If still she doesn't get her periods then it would be better to get examined by a Gynecologist and also to get a home pregnancy test done.

Hope this answers your query. In case of any doubts, I am available for follow up.
