Thank you for posting a query.

Firstly, I do not understand one basic point that is, being an educated woman why you have gone to a medicine store for treatment? Do you think that is better than a qualified doctor?

Secondly, from the history, the condition sounds like irregular menstruation. In this age group, it may be an alarming condition like polycystic ovarian syndrome.

So, you should not neglect this.

First do an ultrasound scan of whole abdomen to rule out any abnormality. Then consult with a gynecologist for clinical examination, for prescribing progesterone group of drug for inducing menstruation and for further management according to the reports of other investigations.

One more thing, in this condition, drugs like unwanted is avoided due to development of further complications like delayed period, hormonal imbalance created by the side effects.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
