It is normal to have delayed periods after delivery and while breast feeding. You should wait for a few days for the withdrawal bleeding after primolut N. It takes time for the body to start normal cycles again after pregnancy, in some woman it may be a month or two while others may get a normal period after 6 months.

I think you will get a period after primolut N, its your 3rd since you stopped it so may be it is just delayed.

Also I would suggest you should have not taken primolut N while breast feeding. But since you have already taken nothing could be done but next time be sure to mention it to your doctor that you are breast feeding before taking any medicine.

Ohh how doesit effect baby because she has motions since then

You took it only for 5 days so hopefully there will not be a problem, but primolut N decreases breast milk production and if taken long term and baby is on exclusive breast milk then the baby may not gain appropriate weight.

Yes it is possible and if you don't get a period in a week you may get an ultrasound pelvis to check the uterine lining. If it is less than 3 mm you may not get a period.
