Brief Answer:
History needed

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir, thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic.

I would like to know if she has had any abortions in past or if she got some treatment to get pregnant

If there were no abortions and it is a spontaneous pregnancy then there is no need of supplements in my opinion, especially if there has been no bleeding or pain episode in this pregnancy either.

Please get back with these details.

Brief Answer:
Only duphaston

Detailed Answer:
In my opinion there is no need of HCG or gestofit.
Duphaston alone will suffice and that too is needed only till ultrasound shows normal heart beat.
Rest everything is not needed.

Dear Doctor,
Thanks for your advice.

Please note that she had already taken the HCG injection. Is there any problem with that??

Also please advice is it mandatory to use the Duphaston during the period or taking folic acid is enough during this period.

Also inform what is the exact purpose of duphaston...

Thanking you..

Brief Answer:
No harm

Detailed Answer:
This all was over and above and nothing is harmful but just not needed as I hope the pregnancy will be fine only.
Duphaston has been added as she had delayed periods otherwise that too was not needed.
All the best and wish her a healthy pregnancy and baby.
