Brief Answer:
Yes, there is a chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Since, she did not have her periods yet pregnancy cannot be ruled out.

I suggest you to get the urine pregnancy test done after 5 days from now to confirm the same.

Need not worry, sometimes the tablet Postpone 72 itself can cause hormonal imbalance and cause delay in periods.

Wish you good health.
