Using I-pill is very much effective in prevention of unwanted pregnancy. Though it gives 95% protection if it is taken within first 24 hrs. Here, chance of pregnancy is less, but you should confirm it by one home pregnancy test initially and later blood test for beta-HCG.

Your upcoming period is delayed due to effect of the pill ( used 3 times) associated with hormonal imbalance. 7-10 days delay is common thing.

Even after 10 days, if you do not get your period, then you may need to undergo some investigation like USG pelvis, hormonal assay etc to rule out underlying pathology if any after consultation with gynecologist.

Avoid stress, take healthy diet with iron supplements, eat more vegetables/fruits and drink more water, control body wt and take proper sleep. Practice safe sex in future.

Be well.
