Question: I have PCOD and never had any menstrual issues. I conceived normally and am now 6weeks+. Doctor has suggested me to take MCBM-69 and Susten 200 mg every day till my Dating Scan date.
I have few pregnancy systems like all day feeling of nausea and dizzyness after taking Susten tablet. Other than that I feel completely fine.
Am i doing the right thing ?

Thanks for the query.

MCBM-69 contains multivitamins and Susten contains natural micronized progesterone.
In PCOD some amount of hormonal imbalance can be there. So may be because of that your doctor might have recommended susten to you.

Susten will help in the continuation of the pregnancy and also prevent premature uterine action.
And it is comparatively safe drug in pregnancy. Minimal side effects can be there as you are having but they will subside soon.
So you can continue the drug as advised by your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi Doctor Sree ,

Thanks for your reply.
So looks like the tablets that I am taking are safe for pregnancy.

I am just worried that the foetus is growing in the right way without any issues due to the PCOD that I have.

Is there any way before I go for my scan for me to be sure that my pregnancy is going well and I dont need to worry ?
I am just worried that the foetus development should not get affected because of my PCOD issue.

Also I have been diagnoised with Hypothyroid condition 6 months back , but with medication(thyrox 50mcg) my TSH , FT3 , FT4 are all under normal limits with no issues. Should i be worried about this affecting the development of the baby ?

Thanks for your time..

Uterus can be palpated per abdominally only after 10 to 12 weeks. So in early pregnancy it is difficult to estimate the baby growth without the aid of ultrasound. Anyhow if you are not having spotting, pain abdomen etc we can consider that the fetus is growing well.
As you are taking hormonal supplementation PCOD may not affect the pregnancy.
As your thyroid hormonal levels are normal with treatment, the development of the baby can be normal.
You have to undergo periodic checkup for thyroid profile and adjust the dosage of the tablets accordingly with your doctor's advice.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

I have recently had a thyroid removal surgery which went very well however, less than 2 weeks later I have a rash on my chest that is spreading and my neck, shoulder and arm (left) has pain. could it possibly be mercer (spelling?) and what does mercer look like?

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.
