Irregular periods. Taken meprate for five days, no periods. Negative pregnancy test. Treatment?

I have irregular periods . My doctor prescribed me Meprate (Medroxprogesterone acetate tablets) 10 mg for 5 days, 2 tablets a day. she told me to take the tablets and that i should get my periods after 7-10 days. It has been almost 14 days now since i finished taking the tablets but i did not get my periods. I also tested pregnancy using PTK 2 days back but it was negative. If anyone has some experience with this medicine, please write.

Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
First of all, you did not mentioned your age. Normally, bleeding occurs within 7 days aftercompleting the drug. But if it does not then another course of progesterone should be tried, if then also bleeding does not started, then dictation and curratage should be carried out after which, you have to start taking combined pill to regularity your period.
