Hello eli_khan,

It would be wise to contact your gynecologist and schedule an appointment. With three negative hpt results, which I think you can accept as reliable, and no period, something is going on.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern about a late period and possible pregnancy.

The I-pill, like all emergency contraceptives, prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. One reported side effect is a change in the menstrual cycle. The first monthly period, after taking the pill, can start earlier or later than expected. Usually, this is only about five days.

A rule of thumb is if you do not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, then test for pregnancy.

If it has been three weeks or more, and you only tested after three weeks passed, then you need to speak with a gynecologist. If pregnancy is not the reason, a hormonal imbalance caused by taking the pill might be the reason your period is late.
