Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your partner's pregnancy.

Since you had given her the i Pill, the delay in periods can be due to side effect of the post coital pills. Pregnancy occurs close to ovulation which occurs around day 14 of the menstrual cycle. Sine you had intercourse close to her periods, chances of pregnancy are less.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your partner's pregnancy you can ask her to get it checked by doing a urine for pregnancy test. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
