Hi, i didn't get my periods from more than 2 months. I have did pregnancy test and its negative so can I take meprate 10mg piles for periods?

Meprate: Because we're not familiar with your complete medical history (is the meprate just to help bring your period back? Is it for contraception? For endometriosis?), this is should be a question for the doctor who prescribed the medicine. However, it's good that you took a pregnancy test, because you shouldn't be taking meprate if you're pregnant. ...Read more
