Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

I think that "Overal-G" is actually "Ovral-G", which is a female contraceptive. Ovral G contains Norgestrel 0.5mg and Ethinyl Estradiol 50mcg which is a combination of progesterone and estrogen.

The following quote is taken from a reputable source: "In general, the use of combination hormonal contraceptives when inadvertently taken early in pregnancy have not been associated with teratogenic effects". This means that there has most likely been no harm to your fetus. This would not be a reason to terminat assuming this is a wanted pregnancy.

Talk with your NEW doctor and make sure they address your concerns. Ask for a targeted ultrasound at 20 weeks as this will help to put your mind at ease about your baby.
