Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Modus is absolutely contraindicated in women who are or who may want to get Pregnant as it is known to cause Fetal growth abnormalities. Since your UPT was Positive, may be you should consult your Doctor and get a Ultrasound scan done and then decide on the future course of action after Discussing it with him/her.

Good Luck.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As your Gynecologist has done USG , she could have seen if there is any pregnancy then itself.If pregnancy has happened by then , the drug is not indicated.The chances of pregnancy occurring while take modus 10 mg are less. Modus 10 mg when taken during pregnancy can cause fetal abnormalities.I advise you to revisit your Gynecologist and get USG repeat scan and then opt for better choice base on USG.

Take care.
