Question: Hi Doc,
After follicular study, my doctor asked me to use GESTOFIT frm 14thday of my cycle, after 18thday she tested me for pregnency and written as negative, on same day i gone with US Pelvis scan.On same day my Doctor suggested me to use Tablet Loette for 21 days. I used it for 21 days without any miss, now after a month of stopping Loette, yesterday i went to general check up and got scanned and found that I am 9 weeks pregnent. Please suggest me by taking Loette without knowing im pregnent will it cause any harm to the baby inside as Loette is called as a abortion pill or birth control. Also for information, im using Thyroid tablets for last 7 months as even im daigniosed with PCOD.

Awaiting for your reply.

Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Ideally, Loette should not be used when you are pregnant. Since this was accidental, now I advice you not to worry.

Using loette during pregnancy may not lead to problem in every woman and not a matter of concern. It contains a combination of estrogen and progesterone.

Loette which is used for abortion contains mainly progesterone and in high dosage. But at this gestational age of 9 weeks you dont have to worry about abortion chances.

I advice you to under go 2 essential ultrasound examination to remove your worry:

1) Ultrasound at about 12 weeks gestation to know NT ( nuchal Thickness) scan.

2) Anomaly scan at 20 weeks. This helps in detecting any possible congenital malformations.

Please continue with your thyroid medication. PCOD is not a matter of concern as you are pregnant now.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.

Hi, My wife had just gone through IVF process and had the Embryo Transfer on the 25th May 2014 (16 days ago) Proluton Depot 250mg was given on the transfer day itself, and every 3 days after that. The last injection given was on the 6th June. Also given was PREGNYL 5000IU on the day of the transfer and 3 days interval twice(6th June was the last Pregnyl Injection). Today, we made a BLOOD HCG and the result shows negative. What went wrong? Do Pregnyl or Proluton effect the reading of HCG in blood?

I am healthy average weight and I am on bio-identical homones and a low dose of thyroid med. befor bed I take prohesterone to sleep. But all thru the night I experience bouts of high body temperature-not flashes, just a slow steady constand heat that causes my entire body to sweat. Do you think the thyroid dose might be to high or can a person have to much progesterone?

Hello. My name is Ms. Eleanor. I have a question about certain affects I am having after having taken Cipro, Progesterone and Doxyclone. I took the Cipro for 3 days only because I didn t like the feelings it was giving me, but I continued with the rest of my prescription for 10 days. The thing is I am into day 15 and I am feeling horrible. Tingling in my fingers and toes, headache, nausea, upset stomach, extreme fatigue, anxiety, muscle twitch and now that I went online and read all of the horror stories about Cipro (fluroide toxic), I am scared to Death I am about to be afflicted by a death diagnosis. Please help me.
