Natural micronised progesterone supplements if suggested by your doctor.

Thank you for all the info provided. It would really help if you could suggest the required tests out of all the tests you mentioned above which are to be done actually.

Please dont take it negatively. I just want to know out of all you mentioned above which are required to be done, so we do not carry out certain tests which are not neccessary.

Thanks much for your support.

Brief Answer:
Better to undergo all of them

Detailed Answer:
Hi Drashti,

Yes, I know the tests are more in number, but all these tests are required during the initial visit of pregnancy. On the next visits depends on the need, only required tests can be repeated. As abnormality in any of these can affect the pregnancy and the growth of the baby, better to undergo all of them according to my opinion and present protocol.
If you still want, I can suggest, among them renal function tests and ECG can be taken after your doctor's advice.

Hope I have answered your query. Will be happy to answer further follow up queries.

Dr.Sree Gouri SR, OBGYN
