Brief Answer: It is mostly because of Ipill Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. The delay in your periods is more likely because of the I pill. I do not think it is pregnancy as you took the Ipill within 24 hours. To confirm on this, please let me know the date of your last periods. Awaiting your response. Regards,
