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.

I am 27 years Female suffering from Polycystic ovaries. In India since i had irregular periods, i consulted a Gynaecologist in Jan 2011, where i was asked to have modus 10mg for 3 days to get periods and to continue with Melmet and Biofer for 6 months. I had the prescription till march mid. I had periods regularly in a gap of 30-35 days interval. From mid of march till april mid for about an month i didn t continue my tablets. I was married on april 2011. Now i am in Germany. Then i started to continue my tablets in Germany from Mid of April. In april i had periods in the starting of the month.But after that till date(around 45 days) i didn t have my periods. In my marriage life we r using condems reguarly. So since i didnt have periods i thought of using Modus 10mg, but it is not available in Germany. Instead in medical shop they told to have Nimotop 30mg. I am now in a confusion whether to have that tablet or not. Also i want to know whether both d tablets are same, give me a solution whether to have Nimotop 30mg or not? If so for how many day i should have? How much i should have daliy? Or shall i wait till periods occurs normally. Or am i pregnant?
