Question: Hi ,

I'm 26years old and have been prescribed regestrone 5mg twice a day to delay my periods as I will be travelling . I would like to know incase of unprotected sex with my partner during these days is it necessary to have an ECP as well or does the regestrone work as an oral contraceptive in these days?

Brief Answer:
Regesterone is not a contraceptive

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Regesterone will not give you contraception. You need to use ECP if necessary.

But if you are nearing due date then your fertile days are over and you may not get pregnant at all.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Hi, I am 27 years old. I had missed period for two months. When I consulted the doctor, she told that there are cysts in my ovaries and had to plan for pregnancy ASAP. I had taken Regestrone tablets and after getting the period I was adviced to take Ovacare tablets for three months. Since mine is a overheat body, I am unable to take Ovacare tablets continuously. I am taking the cooling agents like barley water , coconut water...but it is not sufficient for controlling my body heat. Due to this overheat Iam suffering from Loose Motions very often, getting very small amount of bleeding . I am worried about the small amount of bleeding which is happening due to the Ovacare tablets. Could you please suggest me if I need to take any second thought from any other Gynec.
