Thanks for query,
There is some foetal risk using this drug but if it is a must and unavoidable then taking some risk it is ti be given.
Your obst prescribed this medicine inspite of knowing the fact,there should be reason behind it.
Nothing to worry,remain in touch with your obst and frequent ultra sound.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Neogest is progesterone.It causes these side effects when given in the initial months of pregnancy.
It is used to prevent any miscarriage.Its usage is not mandatory though. Please do not worry about its side effects .In your womb all your baby`s organs are formed now , so these effects will not occur.

Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
