Are Booster Safe For Women Who Are First Pregnant?
Good morning doctor … I am now 28 years old. Married age 22. which means my marriage age is now 6 years. So far, I have never been pregnant. And thank God this September 2019, I was late for the month. I tested it positive. After a few days I went to the doctor. Can the medicine for duphaston be said to be a booster and it is quite expensive. HeheheheTp after browsing there are several articles about duphaston that create anxiety. Was I given the medicine because of my long history of pregnancy … Is it safe for me ??? Thank you.
Good morning Novita, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Duphaston is a drug that contains dydrogesterone, a synthetic progesterone hormone. An indication of the use of this drug in general is to prevent miscarriage, especially in women who have a history of miscarriage 3 times or more.
Giving this drug in your condition may be intended to prevent miscarriage because you need a long time to experience a pregnancy so that the administration of this drug aims to really protect your fetus from miscarriage.
The issue of safe or not, if you use it according to the doctor's instructions and in accordance with your doctor's recommendations, it can be said in general its use is safe because the administration is based on the doctor's consideration based on your condition and your fetus when the examination was carried out.
I hope this helps.
