Missed periods

One of my cousin missed her periods. She is late by 1 month. Her periods are irregular though never been this late. She checked for pregnancy through pregnancy kit and the results were negative. She took an I pill once. Would like to know what might be the problem.

Hello. iPill is a high dose hormone which can cause irregular periods after use. Since pregnancy test is negative, she's not pregnant. Wait for periods. Switch to a regular contraceptive like condom or OC pill, it will save you the stress. iPill is for emergencies, should not be used like a normal contraceptive

Hello, Firstly, avoid using iPill completely. iPill causes an hormonal imbalances in body that might be a cause behind her delayed periods. Use a contraception next time. Since her pregnancy test was negative, she is unlikely to be pregnant.
