Thanks for posting your query.
Deviry contains only progesterone and does not completely inhibit ovulation and implantation. The chances of pregnancy are low while taking deviry but not absent.
You can use a barrier method along with to avoid pregnancy.

Thanks for writing again.
Oral contraceptive pills are a good choice of contraception and can be taken at your age as it is not a criteria for pill intake.
If taken regularly they are quite effective in prevention of pregnancy.
There are various pills available these days as Femilon, Novelon, Ovaral L, My pill.

Consider visiting a Gynaecologist so that you can be prescribed the one after evaluation of your age,height,weight,menstrual history etc.
Hope my answer is helpful.
