At 12 weeks, the BPD doesnt matter much yet. The Duphaston shouldnt have been stopped. It should have been continued. Early trimester spotting is common and can only be treated with complete rest.The duphaston/susten etc can only help. Anyways,at this point after 12-14 weeks,duphaston has limited use.
She just needs regular check ups and usg done. If the bleeding gets heavier,get an usg immediately.
