Detailed Answer:

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query.

Progesterone supplementation is safe during pregnancy.It is necessary to maintain a supportive environment for the developing fetus.

Lovenox (Enoxaparin) is low-molecular-weight heparin and does not cross the placenta or the breast.This makes it safe for the fetus and for the breast-fed infant.
So you don't need to worry.These drugs can be taken during pregnancy.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question or need any clarification.

Kind regards,
Dr.Rovena Murati
