The morning after pill can cause a delay in menstruation but if she does not get her period after seven days (after she drank the tablet), she will have to go for a pregnancy test, as this will be an indication that she might be pregnant.
She can also visit a clinic to have the test done or consult another doctor. This way her mother will not have to find out.
The tablet will not harm the baby in any way.
