Thanks for the query.
Norcutin contains norethisterone.
Which belongs to category X drugs in pregnancy according to FDA.
Means some amount possibility of fetal risk is there.
But as you used only for limited period there may not be much harm.
Anyhow you need to continue the pregnancy with regular antenatal checkups and ultrasound examinations.
TIFFA scan at around 22 weeks is necessary.
Take care.
