Pregnant, advised Proluton with duphaston. Had recurrent miscarriages. Side effect of proluton?

Hi, I had a spontaneous miscarriage around three years back. Now after clomid induced ovulation (treatment started with clomid from Oct, 2011), I am 6 weeks and 2days pregnant. Doc adviced me to take 500mg of Proluton on every wednesday and saturday ( 500 x 4) along with Duphaston 10mg x 2 daily. Now I am worried whether Proluton was given in higher dosage or it might have some side effect on my baby. Please suggest

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
PROLUTON CONTAINS NATURAL PROGESTERONE WHICH IS NORMALLY SECRETED IN HIGFH DOSES DURING PREGNANCY FROM OUR BODY. THE SUPPLEMENTATION OF PROLUTON IS GIVEN ONLY WHEN A PROGESTERONE DEFICIENCY IS SUSPECTED SO THAT THE PREGNANCY MAY CONTINUE. YOU CAN TAKE IT AS PRESCRIVBED TO YOU. IT IS NOT GIVEN TO YOU IN VERY HIGH DOSES.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
