    Suggest treatment for delayed menstruation

Posted on Tue, 8 Aug 2017 in Women's Health
Question: Hi,
I had my last period on 4th XXXXXXX and I had intimated on 3rd and 5th july(unprotected).My next date should be 7th july as I use application which indicates me the next period date.
I was worried so visited the gynecologist where she told me the result of tvs sonography is negative. Urine result was negative too. she suggested me to take regesterone 5 mg. I took it on 13th to 15th twice a day. Can you tell me when i'll get my periods? and what are the chances of getting pregnant.
I am worried a lot and having anxiety of pregnancy. please suggest something

Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy, stress or hormonal disturbance.
If the urine pregnancy test and transvaginal ultrasound is negative for pregnancy, then there are no chances of pregnancy.
Withdrawal bleeding occurs within 5-8 days of stopping the drug regestrone.
You should wait for a week for the periods to come.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
