Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Susten contains natural micronized progesterone which helps in continuation of the pregnancy.
It can be used either once a day or twice a day depending on your doctor's advice and the cause for which she prescribed it.
If you are not having any problem and the drug prescribed prophylactically only, then once a day is enough generally.
It can be taken orally or can be used vaginally. So, better to consult your doctor once again to get clarification regarding the dosage and route of administration she prescribed.

Hi,

You can just insert the tablet into the vagina as deeply as possible with your finger or with applicator.
You can see related pictures on the drug information paper which will present in the tablet pack.

Hi,

Yes, susten can help in controlling the bleeding due to progesterone deficiency.
Here is one article showing vaginal insertion of tablet. It is not susten they are showing, but you can just see the diagram to understand how to keep the tablet with the applicator.

In the same method you can keep the tablet with finger also.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
