Bromocriptine shouldnt delay your periods as such.Instead the drug stabilises the prolactin hormone in the body and causes regular bleeding.If you have missed your periods then wait for a week,because you could still get them.If you dont get it after a week,then first do a pregnancy test and if negative,then you need to consult your doctor again.Your dose might need adjustment.
