Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
Primolut is given for regularisation of menstruation. It can create anovulatory phase but they are not as protective as combined oral contraceptive pills.
So it is not safe to prevent pregnancy after 3 months of intake of primolut.
However you should not be pregnant as you had sex in safe period.
For confirmation get your urine pregnancy test done with pregnancy kit available at pharmacy.
I hope your query has been answered.

Hi,
Welcome back.
As your period was expected on 10th day of this month & you had sex on 6th day of month means you were in safe period & chances of pregnancy are almost nil.
However for confirmation get your pregnancy test done right now (this one is the right time to do it).
Thank you.

Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome back.
If pregnancy test is negative nothing to worry.
Wait for 2-3 days if still don't get period, take primolut 10mg twice a day for 5 days.
After 5 days course of primolut you will get your period.
Take Care.
