Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since your periods are overdue, the first thing you need to do is to rule out pregnancy by doing a urine test using a kit available over the counter at all the pharmacies.
If the pregnancy is ruled out then you can have medroxyprogesterone acetate like Deviry to bring your periods but this is a prescription only medicine and you will have to consult your gynecologist for this.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If you are taking femilon birth control regularly, then you are having a post pill amenorrhoea which is a normal finding. Please do not worry. Withdrawal bleeding with regesterone or medroxyprogesterone ( Provera, cycrin) is not needed. You can start with your next pack of femilon and have normal periods after 28 days.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

I just want to know that how long does the medicine stay in the body and if they will be able to find out if I took the contraceptive medicine or not through a blood test?
