Suprox SR is Isoxsuprine sustained/slow release preparation used as uterine relaxant to arrest preterm labour. Gestin is allylestranol, a progesterone also given to delay premature labour. By definition, preterm birth is delivery before 37 weeks of gestation. Because the foetal lung maturity is complete only at 37weeks, the preterm babies delivered before that time face a greater risk of lung complications. So Gestin should be taken upto 37 weeks and the delivery is safe after 38 weeks
