Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I have read your question fully and understand your concerns.
As you have not yet got your period, you could take the Modus as prescribed by your doctor. Once you finish the course of these tablets, you will get a with drawl bleed within 5 days. From the next month onwards you have two choices. If you want to regularise your period you can go on a combined contraceptive pill like Ergest or Ovral-G for a few months. This tablet is to be taken for 21 days and then you will have a tablet free period for 7 days. After stopping the tablet, within 2-3 days you will get a with drawl period which is like your period. Irrespective of whether your bleeding has stopped or not, you will start the next pack on the 8th day. There are some contraindications for this tablet like it should not be given in obese patients, or in patients with high BP, in migraine patients etc. Hence to get a prescription, I would advise you to see your doctor.

Another option is to continue with the Modus. Every month if your period is delayed you could use the Modus.

I hope this answer has helped you.

Thank you
