Brief Answer:
You have taen less dose.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
At 50 days the pregnancy test would have been positive on case of pregnancy. Regestrone has to be taken thrice a day for at least 5 days and you get the periods 3 days after stopping the pill. The dose you have taken is insufficient to cause proper periods.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Wait for 2 days more.

Thanks for writing again.
Wait for 2 days more and in case the periods do not start then consult a gynecologist and get proper dosage prescribed or start with oral contraceptive pills for 3 weeks.
