Need some details.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

First, please be assured that there are no chances of pregnancy as you had protected intercourse and also you had your periods after that.

At first instance, I feel that the medicines which you took for fever might be one of the cause for delaying your menses. Can you please list those medicines so that I can check them?

Usually at what dates of month you get your periods? Have your periods been regular in past? Do you take any hormones etc?

Kindly provide these details so that I can guide you appropriately.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks.

Actually I don't have the list of the medicines I took for fever as I was in some other city that time and Right now I don't have the reports or medicines' names. Paracetamol I took in large amount. I remember only this.
My period date is around 3rd of every month. My periods have been regular in the past. This is the first time that this kind of thing has happened. Also, I don't take any hormones,etc.
I'm taking all the hot things like jaggery,papaya,etc.
The doctor I visited yesterday asked me to take regosterone 5mg thrice a day for 5 days and then wait for the period. If then also I don't get my period then she'll do the tests. I'm mainly worried about pregnancy. Please help. I want my period at the earliest because diwali is there. I hope you'll understand.
Thanks

Brief Answer:
You should go for testing to know the cause.

Detailed Answer:
As I told that chances of pregnancy is less. still you can go for home urine pregnancy test to confirm it.

you can take medicine as told by your gynecologist. it will surely help in getting periods.

you should go for ultrasound to rule out PCOS,thyroid profile, serum prolactin to know the cause of not getting periods on time.

hope it helps.

feel free to ask further.

thanks.

Yes I had the home urine pregnancy test today morning only and it was negative. I don't understand what is the reason and why I'm not getting my periods. I think I will have to go for other tests.
Thanks a lot for your help!! :)
