The delay in period is likely due to the I-pill. Pregnancy is highly unlikely. However, if she does not start menstruation in a few days, repeat home pregnancy test with the first-morning urine sample. Testing too early van provide false negative results.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
