User :   I'm 30 yrs old, I was supposed to get periods around 6 march, it's been more than 2 weeks now. Lately, even before this, since Jan I've been feeling very weak and dizzy (I have mild spondilitis). I took 2 home pregnancy test (last on 19 Mar), and they came negative. I visited a Gyneacologist, who advised me to take Naturogest and folic acid for 1 week and observe for another week. Today I'll complete 1 week of taking medicines, but no sign of periods. Should I wait for another week. I do not want to go ahead with pregnancy at present.
Doctor :   Hi
