Hello
Thanks for writing to us.
As you have PCOD syndrome, your periods and hence ovulation is irregular.
Based on the ultrasound report that you have mentioned, you probably conceived around the end of November.
Hence, the pregnancy was conceived late , corresponding to your period, so it would might not have showed up by mid December.
Deviry contains medroxyprogesterone acetate, which is often prescribed to induce withdrawal bleeding in women who fail to menstruate normally , as often happens with PCOD.
Please do not worry as there have been no scientific studies which show the adverse effects of Deviry on the baby.
In order to further reassure you, I advice you to go through the following link. It is in scientific terminology, but the meaning should be very clear to you :

WWW.WWWW.WW
Also, at 7 week 3 days, I hope the cardiac activity ( heartbeat ) is well visualized in the baby, and everything else in the ultrasound report is normal.
You should take antenatal supplements ( folic acid ) as prescribed, follow all medical advice given by your practitioner.
Go for all recommended antenatal visits, and have regular testing as advised.
Please do not worry about the issue of Deviry intake and possible harm to the fetus.

Take care and feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Hi, I am 43 years old and my wife is 35. Last year we decided to start a family but were unsuccessful. I was tchecked and found to be having low sperm count and motility. I have been advised to take Paternia (once a day) and Maxoza (once a day). It's been more than 3 months since I have been taking this medicine, without any succes. My wife was checked too and has been given a clean chit. However, she has been taking Folic acid tablets as advised by the doctor. Would greatly appreciate your advice. Thanks very much!
