Brief Answer:
Progesterone can be taken with Copper-T in situ

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Progesterone tablets like Registerone can be taken for delaying periods even if there is coppet T in situ. Sometimes there can be irregularity of periods after taking progesterone, but it is not related to copper T. You need to take medication at least 3 days before your due date.
For my patients, after clinically examining them I usually give 5mg twice a day starting 3 to 4 days before the due date and take continuously till they want to delay (usually for 10-14 days). Kindly visit your doctor for a prescription.
Progesterone medication are very safe, but you need to be careful if you are high risk in developing DVT-deep vein thrombosis, other minor side effects are bloating, stomach upset, breast discomfort
Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!

Brief Answer:
Registerone is nothing but progesterone.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons.
Coming back to your question, Registerone is nothing but Norethisterone which is a progesterone. It is always advisable to consult your doctor before you take any medication.
Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
