Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.
Susten contains progesterone .
It helps to sustain pregnancy and prevents abortion to some extent.
Ovulation kit works on LH surge. it remains positive only for 48 hrs.
In your case if it is still positive, it indicates you have high LH levels which is usually seen in PCOS women.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Ovulation kit basically measures hormonal levels in urine. Leutinising hormone rises to peak during ovulation and reduces slowly. so your test will be positive for few days after ovulation.
Susten is a hormone which is given in early pregnancy to prevent missed abortion. its a progesterone which helps to continue pregnancy, if taken for few weeks doesn't cause any side effects.
effect of drug is more with vaginal use, you can also use orally or rectally.

Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further examination and management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
