Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Firstly regesterone use does not ensure that you would not get pregnant during their use.

Secondly multiple acts of intercourse at different times with use of i-pill only after one of the acts, does not ensure that you are protected from all unprotected acts.

Thus there is a high chance you may get pregnant.

Regesterone when stopped, periods occur within ten days. However if you get pregnant you wont menstruate even after stopping regesterone.

I-pill use does delay your periods or cause unexpected vaginal bleeding. However before assuming that the delay in period is due to i-pill use, you have to rule out pregnancy by urine test.

Take care.
