Thanks for your query.

The drug susten is given to help maintain your pregnancy.If you have gotten your period then pregnancy isnt likely,obviously.In such a case,susten will have no role. Please mention you last period date,and how many days you bled.Had you taken a urine pregnancy test after missing your period. Did you have any other tests done?
How many days was sustain prescribed for and from which day?

Please give me more details so i may understand the problem better and am able to help you.

Thanks for getting back.
You are definitely not pregnant since you bled on the 4th of february. You had withdrawal bleeding after stopping the Endogest. After that, you were prescribed Susten probably to help in conception. Normally, that drug is not given for that purpose. So as of now, you are having progesterone withdrawal bleeding again.
Here's what I suggest:
•     Stop all medication for now.
•     You started bleeding yesterday, so consider that day 1 of your menstrual cycle.
•     If you are trying to conceive, then a more logical and sustained approach needs to be taken. Take tablet duphaston from day 16 of your cycle under the supervision of your gynaecologist. This is a prescription drug and I will not be able to prescribe in this forum.
•     Timed intercourse is very important. You fertile period will be from day 11 to 20, if your cycles are regular.
•     If by any chance, you miss your period by 2 weeks, get a pregnancy test first, and if negative, then further investigations need to be done.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. I would be available for follow up queries.
