Missed period over 15 day

Hi, After having unprotected intercourse with my husband during 3rd day of my period, i took ipill to avoid pregnancy. After that i missed my period which was supposed to start on 24-25th of the month...It's been 15 days over and still i have not got my period. I consulted a gynaecologist and she prescribed me Meprate 10mg. I just want to know shall i wait without taking any medicine for my period to come naturally even though delayed...or i shall take Meprate 10mg to bring the menstruation cycle. If i take the medicine will there be any side effect of it. Will i have to always take the medicine to get my cycle. Please suggest what should i do ?

Misses periods is the common sideeffects of ipill. Don't take meprate as it would thicken ur internal lining which has already thickened by ipill causing further periods problem. Just wait u would eventually get ur periods as ipill has got a high success rate

Hello, why did you take ipill for intercourse on 3rd day of menses , its safe period . Fertility period is around 14 days prior to menstrual bleeding . that's unsafe period . Because of harmonal imbalance your have missed regular cycle.Its good to take mephrate which is medoxyprogesterone to regulate cycle. It cause withdrawal menstrual bleeding . you need not to take repeated doses of mephrate unless you stop taking ipill whenever you want. there are minor side effects which don't have to worry for.
