OBGYN 's  Response
Norethisterone is contraindicated in pregnancy per say.The only time progesterone is used in early pregnancy is for luteal support.
Prenatal vitamins should be started during first trimester.

hi,welcome to healthcare magic
norethisterone is an oral contraceptive which contains hormones which prevent pregnancy(by preventing the egg development),so if you are trying to get pregnant stop that also cause birth defects so contraindicated when you are pregnant.

Hi I am a 35 years female married for past 7 years. My weight is 90 kgs and height is 5 feet 3 inches. I have a history of Type 2 Diabetes for past 5 years and Blood Pressure for past 8 years and PCOD for past 5 years. I have been trying to conceive and have tried multiple options including multiple rounds of IUI, induced ovulation but not been successful. i have got my tube tests done and one has a free spill while the other one has loculated spill. i was tested positive for TB, but a TB Elisia test was done and it gave a negative response. I was hence not advised treatment for TB. However, after that, I have tried multiple doctors and have now compeltely lost hope. I have not yet tired IVF. I continue to try through IUIs. Should i go and try for IVF or continue to try for IUIs? My husband s sperm count has always been graded as okay - in all the cycles of IUI. what could be the best suggestion for me to conceive? with my age not being in my favor, i am really worried.

Hi, I Am mr A chakraborty, here I am writing... Hi, I Am mr A chakraborty, here I am writing about My wife. Mrs. Subarna Mukherjee. Age - 30 years Blood group - B+ Married on - April 2002 Subarna had 2 missed abortions: First was in Dec 2004. The pregnancy was not planned. When she missed her periods a test confirmed the news. She went straight to the doctor and was put on Folic acid tablets and led a very constricted life. At the same she had a throat infection and slight fever and took some medicines which were preg safe. After four weeks the scan did not show a fetal heart beat and soon after she spotted blood which passing urine. She was put on Susten (100mg 1-0-1 x 7 days) tabs and Protasi (2000 1amp) which reduced the spotting temporarily but shortly afterwards clots of large quantiy appeared and she had to undergo an emergency DNC. Doctor - Indira Reddy; Sagar Apollo Hospital, Bangalore. Second was in late 2006 After trying to concieve for two months in vain she consulted the doctor and was suggested Microgest (100mg), EC 350, M2 Tone, A Sugar (500mg), FAS 3 KIT and Clofert (50mg). With the help of above medicines she could conceive in Oct 2006. From day one when the preg test was positive (LMP - 11/9/2006) she was put on HCG (5000) injection along with Microgest (200mg), Ecosprin (75mg) and ofcourse Folic Acid. After 6 weeks the Ultrasound did not show a fetal heart beat and the report said missed abortion. There was no blood spotting yet. She continued with usual HCG and Microgest for one more week. The second Ultrasound done at 7 weeks showed normal fetal heart beat (No Corpus Luteum was reported in the scan report). After a week (at the 8th week) blood spotting started and the flow gradually increased leaded to yet another miscarriage. The abortion was done with oral medicines. Doctor - Hema Malini, Jayanagar, Bangalore. after that, we did not try 2yrs any thing..then from july 09 we started again treatment, she was taking letroz for oct to december...but no result .then month of april she has gone for Laprtscopy & dye doctor are telling her 1 tube is ok, but other is block..., after that april to thik aug(10) we r trying..but no positive result..plzzzzz help me what to do now....

I m trying to get pregnant, but nothing is working. My mother has a heart shaped uterus , so I m obviously fairly lucky to be alive and well. However, I m not entirely sure if I have the same problem, considering not very many women have it. I was told to take prenatal vitamins to help me conceive. Does that really work?

I am 9 week pregnant and for the past 3 week I am been having shortness of breath and tightening of the chest. I have been to the emergeny room and they found nothing wrong. I was told to follow up with my next prenatal visit or go back it the emercency room. However, I am assessing myself to see all the possible triggers, and I thought about the prenatal tablet that I have been taking. I just researched it and found out that shortness of breath and chest thightening is on of the sympthom. It is prenatal vitamins with DHA by Nature's Made. But my concern is would this have affected my baby. I am very worried.

Anxiously awaiting your resnonse.
