 . A woman's body is designed so that an excess of these hormones decreases secretion of pituitary hormones, that normally serve two functions: to stimulate the secretion of female hormones and stimulate egg maturation in the ovaries and ovulation Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?  Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?
   (release of an egg from the ovary).

Since under the regulon in women allocated a little pituitary hormone that stimulates egg maturation (follicle-stimulating hormone - FSH), it is not fully mature and therefore not released from the ovary. In addition, little stands and other pituitary hormone that stimulates the output of mature egg from the ovary (luteinizing hormone - LH). Therefore, the output egg from the ovary is almost impossible.

In addition, it promotes the appearance regulon channel cervical mucus increased viscosity prevents penetration of sperm female genital tract. It also changes the status of the uterine mucosa so that if in spite of all the egg would be fertilized, it could not take root in a mucosa.

What happens if pregnancy still occur

If pregnancy while taking regulon yet come (most often this happens at an irregular taking this contraceptive), then you should immediately stop taking the regulon. During the first week after conception, the egg moves through the fallopian tube toward the uterus. At this time, it has no connection with the mother, because all metabolic processes occurring in it autonomously - used as food nutrients stored in the egg itself. But the egg that matures while taking regulon may not be complete, as its growth and maturation permanently suppressed. Therefore, even at this stage, the embryo may be lacking nutrients.

A week after conception egg implants in the lining of the uterus. But as the mucous membrane of the uterus is changed, there may be two versions of events. The first option - the fertilized egg can not attach to the mucosa and then the embryo is removed from the uterus with another rejection mucosa - menstrualnopodobnoe bleeding, that is, there is something like a spontaneous abortion, but only at a very early stage - the woman of such a process, in most cases not noticed.

The second option - if the egg is still able to penetrate the lining of the uterus, the pregnancy continues. Since the mucous membrane is changed, attach the egg comes fragile and threatened abortion. Depending on the duration of such interruption of pregnancy, this process will be accompanied by more or less pronounced bleeding.

If the pregnancy no matter what's going on, you can settle down here: regulon has no teratogenic (fetal anomalies) or embryotoxic effects on the fetus. Just as soon as a woman discovers she is pregnant, you need to stop taking regulon.
