Hi doctor,

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Tablet Gestin (Allylestrenol) contains natural progesterone, which is given for 5 days to bring about withdrawal bleeding.

You have not mentioned how long you have taken the drug.

Withdrawal bleeding usually occurs 48 hours after stopping the drug to up to 7 days.

If you are still in that period, then you should wait for your period to commence.

If you are over that, then I suggest you to do certain tests like transvaginal sonography, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and AMH (anti-mullerian hormone testing).

Considering your age, you could be in your perimenopause (stage nearing menopause) where menstrual irregularities are common.
