I had protected sex (we used condom) with my hubby on 12 may 2019 in my non fertile period and for more safety I took ipill also. within 48 hrs on 14th may 2019 my last period date was 20 aprl 2019. My period cycle was of 28-30 days. Should I have to worry about pregnancy? Can ipill delay my periods I took ipill last month also on 12 april 2019? Can ipill permanently stop periods?

No, it can not permanently stop period. But yes it can disturb hormonal balance. There is no fixed time in which one bleeds after taking an emergency contraceptive pill. Sometimes unexpected bleeding occurs more over it is not necessary. Next menstrual cycle can be early or delayed as side effects of the pill.

Ipill and unwanted are emergency medicine, loaded with hormones and it can make period delayed erratic irregular or heavy. Emergency medicine should not be used for routine contraception. You can use low dose hormonal pills for 6 months after getting basic tests like blood sugar, cbc and ultrasound abdomen.
