Endogest is the progesterone which is normally prescribed in the early pregnancy to support the progesterone secreting. function of the corpus luteum of pregnancy till placenta takeover the function.
In some conditions where placental insufficiency is noticed doctors will continue it for some more months.
as your wife is having continuous lower abdominal pain to avoid the chances of preterm labor doctor my prescribed it till 8th month.
After completion of 8th month fetus will gain the capacity to survive even after preterm delivery.
Taking endogest may increase the symptoms of pregnancy like vomitings.
Other than that no major side effects are noted either for mother or for baby. So no need to worry,
take regular checkups and ultrasound examinations.
take care
