Hello
Thanks for your query.
If it has already been one week since she missed her normal period, please take a pregnancy test.
The emergency contraceptive pill can sometimes delay the period also, but it is better to check.
Take care.

If the pregnancy test is positive, please consult a gynecologist.
Based on the ultrasound, she will advise medical abortion pills or surgical abortion.
Take care.

If the test is positive -
1. Consult a gynecologist.
2. Take the medical abortion pills / go for surgical abortion as advised by the doctor after examining your girlfriend.
3. Do NOT attempt anything on your own, as it can be life threatening.
All the best.

If the pregnancy test is negative, then there could be other reasons for a missed period such as - stress, anxiety, hypothyroidism, endometrial hyperplasia, polycystic ovaries, hectic travelling, recent and rapid changes in weight etc.
You have to consult a gynecologist, normally progesterone tablets are given to induce withdrawal bleeding, however they can be taken on prescription only after consultation and examination by a gynecologist to know the cause of the absent period.
Take care.

thanks dr.. please tell whether these r reliable or not
nd mensuline ki kitni tablets leni padti hai nd kitne din baad result aata hai.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Aarti Abraham 23 minutes later
There is no scientific evidence for Mensuline tablets, so I would not be able to tell you about those.
I would again ask you to consult a gynecologist and take progesterone tablets for withdrawal bleed.
Do not take medications on your own.
