Dear customer,

THe i-pill has the side effect of delayed periods, irregular periods, increased or decreased bleeding when one takes it.It is due to the side effect of the drug and likely to be due to the imbalance of hormonal levels.

The other side effects are nausea, vomiting, headaches, delaying or early occurrence of menstrual cycle, lower abdominal pain and in some cases excessive vaginal bleeding.The pill has a 95% chance of stopping the pregnancy, if taken within 24hours of unprotected sex.

If the periods doesn't come then you may have the blood pregnancy test done which is more specific test for diagnosing pregnancy.The sonography of uterus is still very confirmatory test for pregnancy and can be done to rule out pregnancy if the periods do not come in a few days.

Thank you
