Welcome to ehealthforum,
After taking the medication for induction of periods, you should get your periods within 10 days of taking the last dosage. If the bleeding has not occurred, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause as well as confirm/rule out pregnancy chances (if you have been sexually active). Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and get your periods. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
