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

I agree with your doctor that the symptoms seem to be related to a gastroenteritis which will relieve in a few days. The treatment of your doctor is correct.

I also suggest to use Susten which is a progesterone.

The progesterone hormones like susten are given to calm down the uterus and prevent miscarriage.

The susten is safe and doesn't harm the fetus.

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

Kind regards!
