Welcome to HCM.
You are carrying 6 wks pregnancy now with history of 1 abortion last year.
SUSTEN or ENDOGEST cap both are same in composition and contains Natural Micronised Progesterone.It is basically used in maintenance of pregnancy in case of threatened or habitual abortion in early weeks.
Along with you can take Folic Acid tab to avoid birth defect.
Side effects are less like Drowsiness, giddiness, weight gain/loss/rash, Breast tenderness or Headache etc.
So careful about any alarming sign like bleeding,pain abdomen etc and consult with your gynecologist.
All the best.
