Detailed Answer:
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your query, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.

1. First of all do not panic.

2. There can be some issues with ovarian hormone production, that can lead to missed periods.

3. As you have confirmed that there is no pregnancy, I will suggest you Norethisterone tablets 5 mg twice a day for 5 days; Of course you will need the prescription for the same.

4. Usually you will start your periods within 3 to 10 days of stopping the tablets.

5. I will also, suggest to get USG done to rule out ovarian condition like PCOS as a cause of delayed periods, at your convenience in the future.

I hope this answer was helpful to you!

Thank you and best regards!
