Thanks for your query.
You can take both medicines together.
However, with irregular cycles, the periods will be further irregular with intake of unwanted 72.
Continue taking registrone as advised.
In future, please avoid taking emergency contraception, and have protected intercourse always.
All the best.
Feel free to discuss further.
