Hello, thanks for using HCM.
If i have understood you well, your problem is that you are wondering if you could be pregnant and you were expecting to see your period by the 13th of February?
Well, Ipill is an emergency contraceptive pill taken to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. Not so sure of what you mean ''he did not went inside'' but if there was a slight chance that his semen reached inside, then it was a wise decision to have taken Ipill. The effectiveness of Ipill is unquestionable, however, when taken under the right conditions. Ipill is most effective when taken within 12hours following the unprotected intercourse but its effectiveness last up to 72 hours after intercourse. You said you took Ipill on the 6th while you met on the 4th, sounds to me that it's less that 72hours which is within the effective period of Ipill and you definitely do not have to be worried. However, if it turns out that the pill was taken after 72hours you will need to do a pregnancy test if the period doesn't finally come.
Best regards.
