There is always a slight chance of pregnancy, even when she is on birth control or take ipill. The chance is however very very small.

The ipill made her cycle stop and her next menstruation will likely be delayed or absent. She may experience a side effect called withdrawal bleeding from the ipill around April 17. It is like a period, but caused by the ipill hormones leaving her body.

It is much too early for her to be pregnant, I even if she conceived.

The chances are very small that she will be pregnant.

She can take a pregnancy test 21 days after the sex, and again 7 days later to confirm the results.

Fitting an IUD will prevent the egg from implanting in the unlikely case that she did conceive. But that will have to be done pretty soon.
