Hi Ms. Chandra,
When you have used the medication, your normal hormonal balance will be disturbed and as such, ovulation may be disturbed. If you have taken the medication to arrest bleeding, your chances of conception while on medication are negligible. If you have taken the drug for postponement of the cycles, there are chances of conception. You would only know if you get a withdrawal bleeding 3-7 days after completion of treatment. If you do not see a period as expected, go for a pregnancy test. Ovulation is erratic for sometime after child birth especially if you are breastfeeding and hence cannot be predicted with precision. Please see your consultant for further support. Good luck.
