However a blood pregnancy test is not a bad idea at this point. Otherwise, if your period does not come in the next month see your doctor. He/she can prescribe a pill that can induce a period, and then a birth control pill can be started to stabilize your period and prevent pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more

But your doctor may want to confirm the diagnosis and/or suggest a particular medication. Call the office. Good luck! ...Read more
