Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Primolut tablets are hormonal preparation and are used for various menstrual disorders and also for delaying the periods in cases of emergency but they are to be taken for a week or so for the delay.

Since they cause hormonal changes in the body it cannot be expected when the periods would start.If you had unprotected intercourse and suspect to be pregnant then they would not cause periods to start.Misoprostol which you have taken is not recommended for this and has various other uses as for termination of pregnancy,stomach ulcers etc.
This drug is to be taken only under Medical supervision as it has some serious side effects associated with it.

You have created a havoc with your cycles by using different drugs.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for pelvic examination and investigations as USG scan and Hormonal analysis which would help in ruling out the pregnancy and then accordingly medications would be prescribed.

Kindly avoid self medication.

Take care!
