Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Pregnacare tablets contain multi vitamins and minerals. Which can be used as additive to regular diet.
Susten contains micronised progesterone, which will help in maintaining pregnancy.
Both these tablets can be used in pregnancy.
But as you are 43yrs, better to check ovarian reserve by Anthral follicle count in ultrasound or by estimation of AMH levels.
If levels are normal you can plan for pregnancy.
But better to be careful from the beginning, you have to start Folic acid tablets at least one month before conception to prevent neurological defects in the baby.
Regular antenatal check ups and ultrasound examinations are necessary to monitor the well-being of the baby.
If you are having history of second trimester abortion you may need to undergo cervical encerclage also.

Hope I have answered your query and I will be happy to answer any further follow-up queries.
Take care.

I went for a scan when I was at 7 weeks and 5 days, was able to see heart beat and foetus measured around 15mm. Two days back bleeding started and had a scan it looks like heart beat stopped and foetus growth is only 17 mm for 11 weeks pregnant When I missed my period I started getting pain in my lower hip and shoulder , I had this same problem in my first pregnancy it continues till 6 weeks..whether that could be a problem for my miscarriage ..

i am 30yrs married female,weight 55kg,ht 164cms. For last 1yr i am planning for a baby. I am diagnosed with PCOD in 2009 and was put on glyciphage 500 and diane for almost 2yrs. On feb 2011 i conceived on ubiphene and duphastan but had a miscarriage after 6 weeks. Since then doctor advised protected sex for 6 months,now that is over i am again planning but doctor said to try without any medication. I am taking folvite from the time i am planning for pregnancy. My husband s semen analysis are also normal.My all other tests like HSG,thyroid,insulin level,prolactin,hormonal studies,blood cell counts are all normal. Currently she has stopped glyciphage since my insulin level are within normal limits and has advised me to take only nacfil 600mg thrice daily along with folvite. My periods have become very normal since my miscarriage though i always had a delayed cycle. Can you plz suggest whether i am on proper treatment or not? Can i conceive?
