Thanks for writing to us.
At 7 weeks of pregnancy, if you are taking progesterone i.m. injections then gestofit may not be required. Too much progesterone supplementation may cause headache, nausea, etc. You can reconsult your treating gynecologist for the same.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
