Brief Answer:
Fertigyn to sustain pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing..
I understand your concern..

Period like pain during early pregnancy can be either an indicator of threatened abortion or it can be corpus luteal pain if the pain is located to one side in the lower abdomen..

Fertigyn is chorionic gonadotropin which helps to maintain pregnancy.. Its deficiency can cause abortion.. So you can take it till 12 weeks..

Get a scan done to see for fetal pole and cardiac activity.. If this fine, you can take progesterone that is susten till 12 weeks..

Hope I have answered your query.. Feel free to ask any doubts.. Good day..
