Orgametril tablets, preventing pregnancy?

Patient

Q: Can orgametril tablets prevent pregnancy if i carry on taking them, had sexual intercourse a day ago?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
These orgametril tabs are synthetic progestogens and can be used as contraceptive if it is taken as a progesterone only pill from day 1 of cycle and continuously on the same time. But if the medication has been started in the middle of the cycle ,then it would not prevent ovulation and pregnancy cannot be curtailed.So if you are taking it continuously , then you may be protected.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
