Thanks for posting your query. I understand your concern.

You need to wait for a week after you finish the medicine, for your periods to happen. If you do not get the same in 7 days time, then you may go ahead and do a home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

However, I strongly feel you may get your periods in the next few days even though you missed the tablet 5 times in the last month.

Hope I have answered your query.

Please do write back for follow up queries that you may have.
