Diagnosed with amenorrhea. Missing period even after taking norethisterone. What's wrong?

Hi, I am diagnosed with Amenorrhea , I was given norethisterone to induce bleeding however it has been 3 days since I stopped taking it, and there has been no signs of bleeding. I had period cramps 2 days after I stopped it but that is it. I didn t have periods for about 5 months. Is there something wrong? I have already did a pregnancy test and it was negative.

Hello,
Thanks for your query.

Norethisterone is given to induce menstrual bleeding.
Since you are not responding to progesterone with the pregnancy test being negative, i recommend you to get a ultrasound done to rule out any pathology.
You can as well start oral contraceptive pills after consulting your Gynecologist to induce menstrual period.

Regards,
Dr Nilofer
