Dear Anon,

Please try to relax. It sounds like you may have a delay in your period due to the ipill. If you have recently taken a pregnancy test which was negative then you are not pregnant, you just have to be patient and realize that a change in period is a side effect of the ipill. It's ALWAYS important to read side effects of any medication you take because every medication has side effects. Stress can also play a large role in delaying your period. So, just relax and let it come. 

Best Wishes,

Rosa
