Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Yes you have to leave the tablet and let the normal physiology take its course. It is unusual (but can happen) to not get spontaneous periods after medical termination of pregnancy (MTP). It can happen as an adverse effect of MTP itself or as a result of stress etc. Thus I would advice you to not get stressed out. The irregularity should settle down on its own. Menstrual cycle happens as a result of cyclical female hormones being produced in the body. If you take meprate (progesterone) that is a female hormone externally, the internal rhythm of hormones will not get settled. Thus I would suggest that you wait for the periods to come this month. Let me know if I can assist you further. Dr Vaishalee
