Hello, thanks for using HCM.
Endogest is a progesterone based drug. Progesterone is a hormone produced in the body and it brings about menstruation. In pregnancy, it supports the pregnancy and aids in embryogenesis ( development of the embryo) during the first two to three months of pregnancy. Medically, it is prescribed during the first trimester of pregnancy to prevent threatened abortions that result due to progesterone deficiency. Your doctor probably has a reason for prescribing it and it is safe.
