OBGYN 's  Response

This drug is a progestin like drug. It has been used off-label in the setting of threatened miscarriages or a history of recurrent miscarriages. Your doctor certainly should have explained why you are on it better. It is also a bit confusing why you are on it at 12 weeks without further information.
