General & Family Physician 's  Response
hello and thank you for aksing HCM,

I understand your concern since you are trying to conceive. Meprate is a synthetic progestogen and is not advisable for administration during pregnancy. While a woman is on synthetic progestogen for treatment of any condition, and if pregnancy is detected, the progestogen must be withdrawn. This is because of the finding of potential harm to the foetus when given during the first 4 months of pregnancy.
So my suggestion is, if you are trying to conceive, to stop use meprate and visit your gynecologist to discuss with him introduction of a new treatment.

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
