Hello and welcome,

You are taking progesterone [ gestanin and maintain injections]. They are helpful in preventing abortions and preterm labor pains. They are safe during pregnancy. The duvadilon is used primarily to treat preterm labor pains. So it is used only after at least 24 weeks. We do not advocate it before that and it is to be stopped at 36 weeks as by then the baby is mature to survive.

So please discuss this with your doctor and then take them.
All my best wishes are with you. Take care and have a safe pregnancy.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
