Progesterone helps

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Inj progesterone supports the pregnancy and prevents abortions due to many causes.

Need not worry, inj would surely not harm her or her pregnancy.

I recommend strict bed rest for a week or so.

If the bleeding increases then she may have to rush to her gynecologist.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
