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.

Wishing you good health.

Hello Doctor,

Thanks for your valuable suggestion
Since i have checked through the clear blue pregnancy test
It showed that im not a pregnant, i use femilon birth control pills every day
According to the doctor suggest since i take im taking medicine having severe lower stomach pain due to cycle is crossed for a week.

Can you make more precise, can regestrone pill is used to get periods.
I tried finding that pills in US but i couldn't find that tablets, can you suggest me some other brand drug

Thank You

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.
