Deviry tablet contains medroxyprogesterone. Its effect on pregnancy and foetus is not clear and certain yet. Ofcourse some studies have shown that it may lead to abnormal development of genitals and cardiovascular system, but it is not well established. As you have taken it only for 5 days, it will not have effect.

Warm Regards
