Hello
Thanks for your query.
Yes, Norlevo does affect normal cycles.
It can prepone or postpone your period by a week.
Also, Primolut would not affect the result of a pregnancy test.
However, taking Primolut blindly is unwise and not advisable.
Please take a urine pregnancy test.
If negative, consult a gynecologist to rule out other causes of a delayed period, and then she can prescribe you medications to regulate your cycles.
Such causes can include anxiety, stress, emotional upheavals, hormonal imbalance, thyroid disorders, changes in weight, polycystic ovaries etc.
Take care, and feel free to ask further questions.
