Hello tshering,
Fishy smelling watery discharge from vagina is an indication of bacterial infection, You need to get treated with antibiotics consult your gync for further advise.
Both Crinone vaginal gel and Susten injection contains progesterone which is used to maintain pregnancy.
Crinone is a vaginal progesterone, so absorption is from vagina. and Susten injection absorption will be from the site of injection.
But both have same mechanism of action, and both are given for same indications.
Take care
