Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

If your period is delayed by 15 days, and the urine pregnancy test is negative, then its unlikely that you will get pregnant in that cycle.

I assume that you want to get pregnant. In which case, you should take norgest/dogest from day 16 of your cycle for 10 days. Along with that, ovulation induction drugs may be needed.

Hope I have answered your query, please write back if you have additional concerns.

Wishing you good health

Hello again,

This is a hormone called progesterone that helps to prepare the uterus for pregnancy.
It possibly helps in implantation also.

Its basically an kind of supplementation to the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. It wont harm you.

On the other hand,this will also bring your menses after stopping the drug.

After finishing the course you should get your periods within a week. Once your periods start I would have advised ovulation induction drugs.

If you have a history of irregular cycles, I suggest consulting a fertility specialist.

It wont harm you as such.This hormone is important in pregnancy.However,if your period is delayed by 15 days, the pregnancy test should have been positive by now,if indeed you were pregnant.
If you arent pregnant then your periods need to come soon for you to continue the treatment.
