You are around 6 weeks pregnant.
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Based on your LMP ( last menstrual period ) , you are now 6 weeks and 4 days pregnant.
Fetal pole is seen between 5 - 6 weeks of pregnancy on a transvaginal scan.
Folvite contains folic acid which is essential to prevent abnormal development of the baby.
Duphaston contains progesterone which will reduce the risk of abortion /miscarriage.
Please do not worry.
If you have any doubts, please upload the ultrasound scan report, I will go through it accordingly and advice you.
Relax and enjoy this golden period of pregnancy and then motherhood !
