Welcome to
First, the tablet deviry which you are taking is a hormone called progesterone.
This tablet was given to you as you complained that you were having irregular periods. When deviry is given for 10 days and then stopped, it causes withdrawal bleeding or menses. If this is taken for 2 to 3 months, it may make your cycles regular and of 30 day duration.
But deviry may not help you conceive a child. There may be some other issue which is causing your infertility. It is best to get your husband and yourself investigated for infertility. And remember that 50% cases of infertility lie with the husband so it is important to get a semen analysis done of your husband first before you get checked up.
I hope my advice helps!
Good luck.

Hi welcome to HCM
Deviry is a drug called medroxy progestrone acetate which is normally given for menstrual problems. Any irregularity in periods. or some uterus conditions.. It is not pregnancy causing drug. Since your periods are irregular your ovulation time is also variable.. You will have to undergo further investigations whether the ovary is secreting ovum or not and when is it secreting.. And depending on that you might be given ovulation causing drugs..
