i took an ipill on 5th Feb ( My periods started on 28th Jan). i have still not got my periods. have done pregnancy test twice, its negative. the HCG count is 1.2.
My doctor has asked me to take meprate 10mg twice for 5 days. and post that recomended an ultrasound.
I am anxious what could be the reason for this delay.

Hi Anon,

Do you normally have irregular periods?
There are many reasons for a skipped or missed period. These include:
■Dramatic weight loss, particularly from drastic diets, eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia , or excessive exercise
■Dramatic weight gain or morbid obesity
■Birth defects including lack of a uterus, vagina, or other reproductive organs
■Medical conditions including cystic fibrosis , Cushing's disease , polycystic ovary , or Prader-Willi syndrome
■Psychological stress—can lead to a hormonal imbalance sufficient to cause amenorrhea.
■Medications—some antidepressants, chemotherapeutics, corticosteroids, certain contraceptives.
■Chromosomal abnormalities
■Hermaphroditism (having both male and female reproductive organs)
■Pituitary tumor
■Thyroid dysfunction
■Uterine scarring

Meprate will induce your period and I'm glad he will be performing an ultrasound after that to diagnose what could potentially be the reason for your missed period.

Keep us posted, please!
