OBGYN, Maternal and Fetal Medicine 's  Response
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Deviry is medroxyprogesterone acetate which is a progesterone given for menstrual regulation.
However, it can cause congenital anomalies in the fetus, hence she should get a detailed anomaly ultrasound at 18-20 weeks from a fetal medicine specialist to rule out any congenital anomalies.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
