Duphaston is a harmone that helps the foetus to suvive till placenta is formed. Usually there is sufficient Duphaston (Prjesteron) in mothers body. but when it's less, there is chance of abortion .Your Dr has prescribed it to prevent it. so pl. continue it.
Thank you.

Hello ,
Yes it is safe to take Duphastan during pregnancy to prevent miscarriage.
If the egg is not fertilized , the corpus luteum stops secreting progesterone and turns into corpus albicans.
If the egg is fertilized ,the blastocyst secretes hCG which tells the corpus luteum to secrete progesterone so as to prepare the lining of uterus for implantaion.After that placenta secretes progesterone to continue the pregnancy.
In patients who conceive with difficulty progesterone is given from outside so as to prevent the foetal loss.
Best wishes
Take care
