Hello and welcome to HCM
) is female hormone Progesterone given for irregular periods
Progesterone definitely has a teratogenic effect (deleterious effect on the developing baby).
Various adverse effects are described like neural tube defects, heart defects, hydrocephaly
, absent thumbs, genital tract defects, virilization
of female fetus (abnormal development of female genital tract).
If the pregnancy is confirmed then visit your doctor , get an ultrasound
The first trimester of pregnancy (first 12 week) is the period when organogenesis (formation of organs) take place.
So, effect of any teratogenic drugs is very harmful.
53 days implies 7-8 weeks. This is apt to go for medical termination of pregnancy so do not waste much time and visit your doctor.
Thanks and take care
