Hi and welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
Deviry contains medroxyprogesterone acetate. Some studies shows that there is an increased risk in abnormal development of fetal genitals and associated decrease in birth weight- especially when it is taken in the first trimester of pregnancy. But some of the other studies doesnt prove this. Hence we cannot predict how much is the risk truly.
Please undergo regular antenatal surveillance and anomaly scan to rule out any congenital anomalies. Please take folic acid supplements in the first trimester of the pregnancy. And avoid further taking any tablets without your doc advice.
Hope this is helpful to you.
