Hi Hafiz,
Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, Gynaecosid mistakenly thought to be an emergency contraceptive, which is recommended for the treatment of amenorrhea not related to pregnancy. Gynaecosid (methyloestrenolone) is an EXTREMELY risky drug. It basically forces your uterus to contract and detach its lining, so taking it causes severe cramps and really heavy menstrual-like bleeding. They are not used for abortion because they are not reliable and can make you bleed to death. Since the pill forces the uterus to contract and shed the lining the injuries to the embryo if it survives can be any injuries like deformation since you will disrupt it's development. They are not to be used for abortion and if you are 3 weeks pregnant (which can also be 5 weeks since you have to add 2 weeks before there was possible to see that you were pregnant in the first place) . The three most commonly used drugs to terminate a pregnancy are Mifepristone, Methotrexate, and Misoprostol. Try to avoid any self medication many times that can be very dangerous. Will recommend you to kindly go and see a family planning doctor and don't take dangerous risks with your body. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks

Thanks for query,
You got delayed period so we have to confirm first that you are pregnant or not
Do pregnancy Test to confirm pregnancy.If positive you have to undergone termination of it at hospital.
If negative then you take pills to start your periods.Once period starts take some regular contraceptive method like regular daily pills or IUD to prevent pregnancy.
Taking I pill twice in a month is not a contraceptive measure.Thanks
