I am suffering with delayed periods. Consulted a gynecologist and started Gestin since 1 week. But still have not got my periods. Home pregnancy tests done and turned out to be negative thrice. Please help.
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.
