Dear Doc, pls help me to know if Naturogest 200mg can prevent preterm labour?
I had baby at 34th week with Posterior Uretheral Valve (PUV) , he survived only 3hrs due to kidney damage.
At the time of delivery i had natural labour pain but my doctor conducted surgery for delivery instead of normal delivery. Its my 2nd pregnancy going fine, running 30th week. I want to check if Progesterone pills (Nturogest200mg) can prevent preterm labour .

Thanks for the query.

Thanks for the query.

Naturogest contains natural micronised progesterone.
Progesterone hormone helps in maintenance of pregnancy by keeping the uterus quiescent.
So as there is previous history of preterm labor better to use supplementation of progesterone which will help in preventing preterm labor by avoiding premature uterine contractions.
You can continue your other tablets as usual.

Your doctor might have advised to continue the naturogest till 34 weeks because:
You had preterm delivery at 34 weeks previously.
Usually by that time the fetus will gain the capacity to survive in the outer world.

Naturogest belongs to category B drugs in pregnancy according to FDA.
Means animal studies demonstrated some possible risk to the fetus but human studies are lacking.
But as:
The risk is not proved in human studies.
Benefits over-weigh risks here.
No risk demonstrated in third trimester you can use this pills.
