Brief Answer:
Dicynon will not help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Dicynon will not help in bringing back the periods. Since your periods are overdue it is best to get a urine test done to rule out pregnancy. In case the test is negative the delay is due to hormonal imbalance.
In that case you need to get hormonal tablets prescribed from your gynecologist to get periods.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Dicynon does not delay the periods.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Dicynon contains ethamsylate. It is used to stop excessive bleeding. It cannot delay your periods. If the pregnancy is ruled out then you need hormonal pills to delay the periods. You can get these pills prescribed by your gynecologist.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
