Loprin (low dose aspirin) is given in patients with intrauterine growth retardation of baby mostly due to antiphospholipid syndrome or thrombophilias. Lupigest (progesterone) hormone is to fulfill the deficiency of progesterone in pregnancy like in cases of threatened abortions. Both medicines are different, have different indications in pregnancy and are not subsitute to each other.
