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.
