Brief Answer: hormonal imbalance Detailed Answer: Hello, After taking ipill you should have got withdrawal bleeding within 3weeks. If you havent then its due to hormonal imbalance. If the home pregnancy test is negative, then pregnancy can be ruled out. Wait another week or so. If you dont get your period, then see a doctor for medicines to get your period.

Brief Answer: wait and watch Detailed Answer: Firstly, in ectopic pregnancy, urine test will show positive also. Having said that, there is always a higher chance of repeat ectopic after the first one. Before taking any medicines, pregnancy has to be ruled out. If you have had a bleed after taking ipill, then we need to find out why. Wait another 7- 10 days. Repeat the pregnancy test if you dont get any bleeding. Rule out ectopic with an ultrasound. If all is negative then you will need medicine to get your period. This is likely to be due to an hormonal imbalance. Tab deviry 10 mg twice a day for 5 days.
