Thanks for writing to us.
I have gone through the ultrasound, and it is a film, but it appears normal to me.
Could you provide me with details of her last menstrual period, and whether she had any problems in the initial days of pregnancy.
Sometimes, if the pregnancy is lagging behind, and the growth is not corresponding to the weeks of gestation, then the doctor might prescribe such medications.
ALso, on examination , if she find that the cervix ( mouth of uterus ) is not tightly closed, and there are chances of impending abortion , such drugs might be prescribed.
Corion 5000 is supportive injection for the growing embryo , and provides hormonal support.
Similarly, lupigest and duphaston are forms of progesterone.
Fol g1 is folic acid, which is routinely recommended for all pregnancies in the first trimester.
Based on the single report sent, I cannot see the reason for such intensive pregnancy support, but none of the medications harm the pregnancy, in fact they are all supportive to the growing embryo.
Take care and feel free to ask for further clarifications.
