Pregnancy. Taking norethisterone to prevent menstrual pain. Side effects on fetus?

Hi Dr, My wife had her last period on 6 July 2012. We got married on 21 July 2012 and went from honeymoon from 30/07/12-14/08/12. During this period, she started taking norethisterone twice daily to prevent menstrural pains. However, we found out last week that she s been pregnant. We would like to ask about the effects of norethisterone on the fetus . Many thanks.

Blood test for HCG may be necessory for confermation. then if it is positive though there is no rule
you should be cautious by taking a 3dimentional obstrectic scaning in 5th month to rule out any foetal
abnormality under the guidance of a doctor.
