Question: hi,
I was on birth control for 6 months...then stopped for a month (I was on a roadtrip and forgot to pack my pills) Now, after a month, I decided to take primolut to induce my period so I can go back on the pill (i have pcos, so I need to induce it) Its been 7 days since I stopped primolut (5 days, 2 times a day) I still didn't get my period, should i be worried? I really need my period to come, thanks

thanks for the prompt reply.

I'm not pregnant (100% sure, I got my reasons)
So 7 days have passed, I can wait 7 more days? So I shouldn't be alarmed?

Brief Answer:
Yes,you can wait for 7 days more.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Sorry for the very long delay in my response.
If you are sure that you are not pregnant than you can wait for one more week without any tension because period maybe delayed due to hormonal changes.
Sorry once again for such a long delay.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.
