Hi. Progesterone 200mg is given intravaignal to patients having luteal phase defect before conceiving or with history early miscarriages or conceived after IVF. It is given to support the pregnancy, till the time placenta develops and take over its function.
don't worry it is being given to help your pregnancy and will not harm the foetus.
As you insert it at nieght, some particles of it may come in urine in the morning. It is normal.
Thanks and good luck.
