Thanks for your query.
Gynaecosid is a hormonal tablet mainly used in absent periods, where pregnancy is excluded, in order to induce menstrual bleeding.
It is NOT recommended as an emergency contraceptive.
It is NOT used to cause an abortion.
Please consult a gynecologist to have a prescription for an emergency contraceptive.
Or buy common brands available over the counter.
Taking the wrong medication in the wrong doses is not advisable.
IN future, please insist on protected intercourse.
take care.
