Does Duphaston cause brown spotting during pregnancy?

I’m 7weeks pregnant . Went for an ultrasound and doc could only find the gestational sac and yolk sac and told it looks like 4-5weeks . Had no cramp or spotting and periods was regular before. She prescribed duphaston 2 times per day for 3weeks. Since taking the medication stomach cramping very much Everyday and also brown spottings which was not there before the prescription .is it safe to continue with the tablet or stop and see the doctor?

Hello,

I think you should continue taking progesterone because it is used to support pregnancy and to stop spotting.
If you stop it suddenly the spotting is going to be increased and even bleeding may occur.
Consult your doctor to increase progesterone dosage.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello,

Duphaston can cause cramping in the stomach. But the brown spotting is not related to it. The spotting will decrease gradually. In case the bleeding increases than do consult your gynecologist.

hi i am ment to be 8w2d pregnant, my last period started on mon 7th feb. on fri 18 march i had some brown spotting and got an appointment for an internal scan for tues 22 feb. by then i should have been 6w1d but my scan measured the baby at 5w1d. this was put down to late ovulation as my periods are irregular. this scan also had to finish quickly as i began to feel sick and my bp dropped. i had another scan two weeks later on tue 5 april but at this scan the baby only measured 6w and no heartbeat was found,the doctor said a mistake mite have been made on the measurements of the first scan as it had to end abruptly. im confused because i done my home pregnancy test on sat 5th march and got a positive result and the last time my partner and i had sex was sat 26 feb.im so confused is it possible that my baby is going through a slow growth period? or going by the dates could i be 6w pregnant? i have another scan next week on 12 april to look for a heartbeat. i have had a miscarriage last april. i also have a healthy boy whos almost 2

I was on the mini pill and forgot to take it for over a week. I started getting brown discharge/spotting a few days after, it lasted for around two weeks. I thought this may have been my period at the time, but it was a it was really early, however I didn t have my period at the end of the month. Anyways I had a dream I was pregnant so, thought I would take a test after remembering all the above. Turns out I am actually pregnant and according to clear blue digital. I am 5+ weeks. What I suppose my question is. What was the brown stuff? Was it my period? I can t pin point when this all took place, but I definately had a period in October. This may have all occurred in November early Dec I m not sure. Is it possible I am 10+ weeks pregnant?
