Thanks for posting your query.

There could be various reasons for missing periods in your case.

1. Hormonal changes
2. Anxiety
3. Some illness or other medicines taken
4. Pregnancy

Normally after taking primolut n, you should have periods in maximum one week. As you still you are not having your periods, you need a medical examination by a gynaecologist.

Your doctor after examination will have some clue to the reason for missing periods and he might ask for some investigations like repeat urine pregnancy test, ultrasound to look for the cause.

3 weeks is sufficient time that has passed. Please do not wait more and visit a doctor.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
