Hi im 9 and half weeks pregnant... I was given cyclogest from week 5 as I saw brown bleeding and brown mucous. Despite the fact that bleeding supsided a little I still saw bleeding at least 2ce a week. The doctor suggested I have duphaston instead 3 times a day. After 5 days of havinh the pills the bleeding increased. In the last two days I see some brown bleeding and spottong each time I go to the bathroom. The doctor suggested I should take cyclogest again this time one in the morning and one in the evening 400mg each. Do u think its safe to switch each time medications im really worried about this bleeding. 2 days ago I had an ultrasound and it looked ok heartbeat and all. But im still very worried of what to do.i had a hidtory of one miscarraige at 8 weeks. It was missed.
