Brief Answer:
Can continue

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Progynova contains estradiol. It helps in thickening of endometrium.
Duphaston contains progesterone.
It helps in implantation and maintenance of pregnancy.
Some amount of side effects can be experienced with these drugs.
But usually benefits overweight risks here.
You can restart them and can use as advised by your doctor.
If side effects recur, you may stop the drugs and can use natural micronized progesterone with your doctor's advice. Possibly this can help in supporting the pregnancy and in avoiding side effects.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the response, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.

Hello, I picked up my birth control today and, usually it s Portia 28 but, I received something called Marlissa Levongestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol. What happened... Did Marlissa buy out Portia 28, is it okay for me to randomly change brands, should I take this, return it, etc?? Thank you, Elaine

I have been prescribed an extended cycle 91 day(Levonorgestrel 150mcg/ Ethinyl Estradiol 30mcg). The instructions state to start taking it the first Sunday after my next period. Is it ok to start taking it now, while also using a back up contraceptive for the next week or so, even though I should be ovulating around this time? I want to avoid getting pregnant but also want to avoid getting my period at my wedding. From reading online, it seems that eggs only live up to 48 hrs after ovulation, and sperm can survive up to 5 days, so by using a backup method for the next week it will prevent pregnancy.

Hi, I am currently taking Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets for birth control and I was wondering if I could be on diet pills at the same time without having the pill be less effective. If this is possible to have the same effectiveness with my birth control then what diet pill should I take? I am 22 an would like to loose twenty or so pounds.
