Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. It was wise that your girlfriend consulted a physician. A urine test and ultrasound will confirm whether or not she is pregnant. Her physician can address her complaint of abdominal pain.

Regarding the effectiveness and safety of the I-pill, I can provide you with general information. This particular emergency contraceptive does not appear to be available in the U.S,, but in India.
Is that where you live?

The i-pill is only safe for women between the ages of 25 and 45.

The pill is to be taken soon after unprotected sex. It should be taken preferably within 24 hours and before 72 hours. I-pill is 95 per cent effective if taken in time.

The i-pill is a hormonal pill and its long time usage can lead to severe menstrual problems or even ovarian damage.

The i-pill is not without side-effects. It can reduce sexual interest, lead to skin allergies and also postpone periods in some women. Other women complain of severe headache.
