Your can follow your sister treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.
I can understand your concern here.
In my opinion, your sister's opinion is a better option and you should continue with it.
Proluton- depot is a progesterone and helpful in proper growth and development of foetus and prevent premature delivery.
Gestin tablets are useful in cases of placental dysfunction.
Take proper rest and do not lift heavy weight.
Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more information.
Good luck.
