We understand the concerns that you feel
Drugs that work to strengthen the womb in early pregnancy generally contain the hormone progesterone. This drug is indicated for pregnant women who are at risk of miscarriage in early pregnancy.
Normally, the body will naturally produce the hormone progesterone when fertilization is successful. The hormone progesterone has an important role in pregnancy, which is to help strengthen the uterus so that the embryo can carry out a perfect implantation in the uterine wall as a developing fetus. Progesterone hormone production will increase until the embryo successfully attaches to the uterine wall and is able to produce its own hormones to maintain pregnancy. This hormone is called the HcG hormone (human corionic gonadotropin).
The HcG hormone will continue to be produced during pregnancy and will continue to be produced until its peak level until the placenta is able to sustain in the provision of nutrition for the fetus.
So you do not need to worry if at the age of 8 weeks do not consume pregnancy boosters. The drug is generally taken only temporarily in early pregnancy, to help maintain an embryo that will develop into a fetus. At the age of 8 weeks, the process of organogenesis (fetal organ formation) is generally almost fully formed and the uterus is already in a strong condition to support it, so that fetal strengthening drugs are not needed. Unless there is a medical indication that requires consuming the drug at the instigation of an obstetrician directly.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
