Progesterone in early normal pregnancy?
My wife's doctor has advised her to take Progesterone.
Dosage: 1 Susten 200/daily internally.
Question: Is it safe and necessary to take this medicine as this medicine has many side effects?
- She is almost six weeks pregnant, and the pregnancy is normal
- during 3 week she spotted 2 brown spots.
- Her Real Time Pelvis Sonography details:
" Anatomically normal urinary bladder.
No evidence of calculus / mass lesion is seen. The walls appear normal.
Normal anteverted uterus measuring 7.2x4.5x3.4 cm. No focal lesions are seen. The endometrium is central.
There is seen a tiny cystic structure measuring 2.7mm in the endometrium - Early gestational sac.
Both the ovaries are visualized and appear normal.
No evidence of solid or cystic lesion seen in the ovaries or adnexae."
- Her BETA HCG (For Blood) is 1316.24, this is done by ELFA: MINIVIDAS technique.
Can you please advise us?
Thanks in advance.
