Brief Answer:
Side effect of I-pill

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.

Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy or I-pill.
If the HPT is negative, then the pregnancy is ruled out.

I-pill has the side effect of delaying the next expected periods by 2-3 weeks.
So, your periods are delayed due to the hormonal effect of the pill.

I'd suggest you wait for another 2 weeks for the periods and not to worry.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.
