Yes: When taken correctly. Duphaston has been used in pregnancy for women that have had miscarriages and when taken correctly it should be safe for your baby. As with any medication, it is important to weigh the risks vs benefits. If the benefits outweigh the risks then I would take the medication. Your Dr knows you best, so if you have concerns regarding your meds, be sure to ask!

Duphaston: Production was stopped in the uk but is still made by abbott. Stopping it may result in irregular periods for a time. Your gyn/pcp may be able to recommend a viable substitute for it if it isn't available in your area.

Check with doctor: Clarify with your doctor what medication you are prescribed and for what reason. Progesterone is not usually given for contractions. It sometimes is given if the cervix is short on a sonogram. It is also given in injection form to those with a history of preterm labor in previous pregnancies.

Progesterone: Although may be used in Progesterone deficiency in women with habitual abortions the use of Progesterone during pregnancy otherwise is not recommended and yes, you should discuss potential problems with the obstetrician seeing you, and if not satisfied, get second opinion.

Ans: Well my advice to you is to get off of all medication. Let your body adjust itself and when it has done so you will do much better. Remember not only do you want to get pregnant but you want a healthy baby.

Possibly yes: When subsequent ultrasound examinations do not demonstrate an evolving embryo, or the pregnancy hormone concentration does not double every two days, and clinical signs like breast tenderness disappear, then there is Concern for an impending miscarriage.

Unclear question: How or why would they "harm" your baby? How old is your baby? Were the other toddlers sick? Please take the time to form a thoughtful question so you can expect a useful response.
