Below is the letter given by the doctor after scanning. I stay in XXXXXXX and the treatment and scanning was done in Manglore. Now we are back to Mumbai. Doctor told us to XXXXXXX the new for scanning again after 5 week. We are not sure if we should wait so long and then consult a new doctor in XXXXXXX

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

Regarding the medicines prescribed by your doctor, Duphaston is progesterone hormone to support the pregnancy and Docosa-fM is a multivitamin. Both are safe in pregnancy and often prescribed by doctors. Your first scan is normal so doctor's advice for repeat scan after 5 weeks is fine. Repeat scan is a basic scan and I believe facility is easily available at XXXXXXX and of course in Mumbai. You can consult a new doctor in XXXXXXX if you do not want to wait in Mumbai, both are good options.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries, if any. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
