Brief Answer:
Wait for 2-3 days more and check your urine again.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
1. Waiting for one week is sufficient after taking ovral. If there are no periods then test your urine again for pregnancy.
2. You can wait for 2-3 more days.
3. If this does not work then you may have to take ovral for full 21 days.
4. High levels of prolactin are causing the delay in periods. Do not miss cabergoline.
5. Azifast or Zintec does not delay the menstrual periods but the stress and anxiety can.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 21 hours later
Brief Answer:
Yes. A TVS scan will help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Yes. You should go for a TVS scan and a few blood investigations also to find out the cause of this delay. Polycystic ovaries need to be ruled out.
Hope my answer is helpful.

Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 5 hours later
Brief Answer:
Ultrasound scan report is normal.

Detailed Answer:
1. Your ultrasound scan report and other blood tests are normal except for raised levels of prolactin.
2. Usually withdrawal bleeding starts in 72 hours after stopping the pill.
3. You should wait and let your serum prolactin levels normalize before trying for a kid.
4. A repeat TVS scan is not necessary right now.
5. The clear watery discharge is due to hormonal influences and can be due to impending period.
6. You can continue with ovral till the prolactin levels normalize.
