Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If the Ayurvedic medicine to get your periods is an abortive medication (ie taken to cause miscarriage and get periods) then it is unlikely to contain HCG. Also, most such preparations taken to get periods are unlikely to contain HCG. So yes, you can take a HPT and see. Hope this helps. Take care!
