Lutenyl is a synthetic progesterone containing nomegesterol. Similar to birth control pills, it's not recommended to be used during early pregnancy, but as far as we know, it won't cause any harm to the fetus in case you're pregnant. I wouldn't recommend taking it if you think you're pregnant, but if pregnancy is unlikely, it should be fine to use. Best wishes.
