hello there..

Thanks for the query.
Regesterone is a progesterone hormone which help in withdrawal bleeding after use in ammenorhea (no menses). It has no role as a contraceptive ie to avoid pregnancy.\It would definitely regularize your cycles if you use it for last 10 days in your cycle.
But that wont provide you contraception. You can still conceive if you have unprotected intercourse. As you say you had unprotected intercourse this cycle and you have missed your periods , it is possible that you are pregnant. So i suggest you do a urine test for pregnancy. Incase its negative, then you can relax. If you have irregular cycles for more than 3 months, you need a proper evaluation which includes ultrasound and hormonal tests to rule out pathological causes of irregular periods. TO regularize your periods , you can use oral contraceptive pills which will also provide you contraception instead of regesterone which would just help you in getting periods but doesnot provide contraception.
Hope i have answered your query.
