Hello,
Thanks for writing to DoctorSpring.com with your health concern.
To answer your question - No, a gynecologist will not prescribe Norculot to pregnant women.
This drug is contraindicated in women who are pregnant, or are planning a pregnancy.
It cannot cause an abortion , however its usage has been associated with certain developmental abnormalities in the growing baby.
Hence it is not used during pregnancy.
Hope I cleared your doubt.
Please let me know if you have any other concerns or wish for more specific information.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.


Patient replied :

Thank you for the answers. I have been given Norcolut to induce menstruation because my period has been late for 13 days. And I was not sure if I was confirmed not pregnant or not, because I forgot what the doctor said. So I am concerned whether I'm pregnant? I am 20, and if I were to be pregnant, I think it would just be a month old. I'm worried that I'm pregnant but I don't want to be pregnant. But from what you said, it's impossible for him to give me norcolut when I'm pregnant because it will not abort it. When he gave me Norcolut, it was stated on the wrapper 'For period to come out'. So he's giving me this so that my period is out and I'm confirmed not pregnant right?


HI
If you were pregnant, you would not be given Norculot to induce an abortion.
It is being prescribed to bring on your period.
If you are so anxious, you can take a pregnancy test yourself at home.
Regards.
