Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Progynova contains estradiol. It helps in thickening of endometrium.
Duphaston contains progesterone.
It helps in implantation and maintenance of pregnancy.
Some amount of side effects can be experienced with these drugs.
But usually benefits overweight risks here.
You can restart them and can use as advised by your doctor.
If side effects recur, you may stop the drugs and can use natural micronized progesterone with your doctor's advice. Possibly this can help in supporting the pregnancy and in avoiding side effects.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the response, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
