Taking primolut n, metformin to regulate periods. How long after stopping primolut will i get my periods?

Hi I have pcos and was taking primolut n to regulate periods. I also used metformin.

My period started regulating so I laid off the primolut and stopped takin the metformin as well. This was since July and I haven't seen my period as yet. (Not sexually active)

how long after stopping primolut would I get my period. Or is there cause of concern?

I have been trying to ease up my stress at home and I'm about 35-40lbs overweight. Started packing the pounds just like that. No bad diet.

Thanks for your query.
Normally metformin should be continued for patients with PCOS, as it regulates symptoms.
Also, after taking Primolut, generally you get a period within 2 - 3 days of stopping the drug, as withdrawal effect from the hormone.
Maximum 7 days after stopping the drug.
Weight loss is a must.
Even 5 % weight loss regulates the cycles.
All the best.
