Pregnant, had spotting. Was given Susten, no spotting. Should I continue medicine? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Please proceed with the query.
I am pregnant [8 weeks completed]. Last week I had a slight spotting. But till the time I reached doctor the spotting was gone. I had my early pregnancy scan done.
No bleeding was seen inside and the os closed
The doctor suggested to take susten 100 twice a day for 10 days.
After a week I had an appointment with the doctor again.
and they suggested to continue with the medicine untill 12 weeks
I mean until I am 12 weeks pregnancy completed
That was the only day I had such kind of spotting and that i did not have even a drop It was just the walls had it and when I wiped it showed the blood.
even till date I dont have any issue
Is it necessary that I should continue taking susten 100?
Also does it have any side effects on my baby?
I understand your concern. Thanks for giving a detailed history.
Let me brief you regarding this.
And that is the reason progesterone supplementation is done whenever there is a spotting or bleeding in the first trimester.
In most cases, the bleeding or spotting stops when the supplementation is done.
But in my case the spotting stopped even before taking the supplement
In your case, your treating Gynecologist must have felt it necessary to continue the medication.
May be it was given to prevent further spotting or bleeding.
Yes that is the reason I took it for the 10days duration which thay had specified
but now again they want me to continue till 12 weeks
Did you discuss the matter with your gynaecologist?
Is it fine if I stop taking it now and take it only if I get spotting anytime?
But she still recommended to take it as she does not want to see any risk
I understand the difficulty you are facing. But I am sorry to say that, only the decision of stopping a medication can be done by your treating gynaecologist.
That is because, he/she will be the best person to make the decision.
ok. But is there any side effects of susten 100 on the baby?
No. There is no side effect of susten reported till now, on the foetus.
