Hi,

Menstrual irregularities in your case, could be due to hormonal imbalance caused by an iPill. As you took I pill on time there is almost no chance of pregnancy in your case. So wait and watch for your menses, get your home urine pregnancy test after 7 days of your missed period date.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Richa Agarwal, OBGYN
