History noted. It is nothing but the progesterone hormone. In suspected cases of hormonal deficiencies this hormonal injections is given for sustaining the pregnancy till the placenta grows well and takes up the work of producing the hormones required for the rest of pregnancy.Taking of this injection is very safe in pregnancy and it will not affect the baby. Hence continue the treatment as prescribed by your doctor. All the best.
Good day.
