Uterine Booster At 10 Weeks Gestation?
I am mia, age 26. I am pregnant with my first 10-month-old pregnancy. The doctor said that my uterus and my fetus were healthy. But the doctor gave me a 200 mg Utrogestan uterine booster drug for 1 month. I only took 1 medication. Because I do not have a history of miscarriage and the spots never come out so I hesitate to continue taking them. What do you think the doctor? Is it safe if I don’t take the medicine again? Thank you
Hello Fahmia Alda,
The drug given is a drug that contains progesterone where progesterone itself is a hormone that plays an important role in the female reproductive system, this hormone can be naturally produced by the body when approaching menstruation and during pregnancy. Lack of the hormone progesterone itself can cause several conditions such as menstrual disorders, miscarriages, or other conditions.
The use of homemade progesterone can be given for several indications such as hormone replacement at menopause, preventing miscarriage especially with a history of recurrent miscarriage given in the first trimester, keeping the uterine muscles relaxed during pregnancy, overcoming menstrual disorders, and other indications. Its use alone needs to be considered in several conditions such as in patients with kidney disorders, liver disorders, heart problems, blood vessel disorders and several other health problems. Like every other drug, progesterone also has side effects which can arise such as nausea and vomiting, headaches, mood swings, acne and so on if side effects occur, it is necessary to stop using them.
Giving this drug to you is certainly based on a doctor's examination and indications given. For that it needs to be consumed according to doctor's orders. If you are in doubt and do not want to consume it is better to do regular and regular checks and ask for indications of administration of the drug based on your condition so that you can consume calmly. Strive to maintain nutrient intake, avoid strenuous activities, fulfill resting needs, manage stress well and of course check for pregnancy periodically so that the pregnancy can go well until delivery later.
May be useful,
