Brief Answer:
It will not cause abortion.

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am,

Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.

Deviry is a medroxyprogesterone( progesterone) hormone and can be used for withdrawal bleeding.

Usually it is progesterone and not harmful to the fetus and in your case your urine pregnancy test is also negative.So the chances of pregnancy are also very low.

Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

It is legal I meant to ask. And I dont need to tell my in laws about it. I doubt my hubby will allow abortion as they may ask to wait to see its gender.
