Brief Answer:
Side effect of I-pill.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your wife health care.
I can understand your concern here.
Your wife period may be delayed due to side effects of I-pill because it contains high doses of hormone in it and cause hormonal imbalance.
She should go for a home urine pregnancy test after 7 days of her missed period date to rule out( as a rule, though the chances are very less.
Please share her results with us.
Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.
