Hello doctor,

I took Deviry 10 mg for 15 days twice a day. Now, I found that I am pregnant for five weeks. Will it harm my baby? Should I continue with the pregnancy or are there any chances of abnormalities in the baby?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have not described your detailed history regarding medical, surgical, gynecological, obstetrical history here. Have you done serum beta hCG or transvaginal scan? If done beta hCG, it is better to have two levels (test to be done two times with an interval of 48 hours) beta hCG to have a clear idea about the pregnancy whether it is increasing by more than 60 % in a healthy manner. Deviry is a progesterone hormone. Few doctors give it to support conception and early pregnancy as well. So, it does not have a harmful effect actually. Ask all medications from your treating doctor in detail that you have been taking for conception, PCOD, regulation of cycles, etc. as few hormones are supportive to pregnancy while others can have wrong effects as well.

Have full treatment if any disease that you have been experiencing. Continue Folic acid 0.4 mg daily. Have transvaginal scan and beta hCG two levels with an interval of 48 hours. Few patients with a history of multiple miscarriages, polycystic disease, infertility, etc., are advised supportive hormone progesterone for pregnancy or early conception. You have not given your history here but it is better now to discuss with the treating doctor that with early pregnancy your previous history will he/she think that you need progesterone support. If yes, it could be given until the end of the first trimester or even more.

I hope you get my point.
