Hello sir and welcome.

In my opinion, the most likelt medications your doctor had prescribed was with the active ingredient medroxyprogesterone. This medication is used to trigger bleeding in case of a delayed mesntrual period. But this is only a guess and it would be best to consult the doctor who precribed the medication for your wife.

The reason why your current doctor is asking for the name of the medication is because these medications can have an effect on the growth and development of the fetus.

But please also note that many women have consumed medications unknowingly and have continued to have an uneventful pregnancy and delivered healthy children sucessfully.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
