Regestrone usually does not cause any problem on growing embryo before confirmation of pregnancy or organogenesis of fetus (4-5 weeks onwards).

You can take the medicine to postpone period for 1-2 days only as you are TTC in this month. It should be taken 3 days prior to due date. You will get period within 3-5 days of stopping the pill in absence of conception.

If your period is delayed more than 7 days, you would undergo one home pregnancy test to check pregnancy status. Blood test for beta-hCG is more reliable. Study proves that norethisterone (regestrone) should not be taken after 5 weeks of pregnancy.

Hope, it helps for you. For more details, you can visit my profile for direct query. Be well.
