Susten contains progesterone and so you had withdrawal bleeding after stopping the drug. It is not needed prior to conception if you have regular cycles and is useful only after conception if situation warrants and is then used continuously. Sustain is hormone used for sustenance of pregnancy. They are not the same. You should check the label and use what your doctor has prescribed you. Take care.
