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.

Hi I have been tested negative for thyroid & liver problems & arthritis. However I am unwell at least for sometime every day and have the following symptoms. Slight arrythmia, heat intolerance, even when it isn t hot at all I can heat up a lot, when i drink even cold drinks I heat up. Breathlessness, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, trembling hands, muscle weakness, depression, concentration difficulties, even when I eat a lot I don t put on weight. I have difficulty getting back to sleep when I wake up at night, pains/aches in joints and hands, mood swings, forgetfullness, body odour problems. When I twist the upper part of my body, where my thyroid is it feels like something is grinding and it blocks my airways a bit making it difficult to breathe. I take no medications apart from a ventolin inhaler. I have been diagnosed with adhd, tourette syndrome & depression. It really appears to me to be a thyroid problem but the tests have always been negative

I recently had the left portion of my thyroid removed due to an enlarged nodule. Since the surgery (7 days ago) i have been feeling very jittery. I have been unable to sleep for the past few nights. There was no evidence of hyper or hypo thyroid prior to the surgery. I am not on any thyroid medications. I take Celexa 40 mg once/day, daily vitamin and calcium supplement. Is this normal after this type of surgery?
