Misuse and overuse of progesterone can lead to a side effect like fetal deaths?

Misuse and overuse of progesterone can lead to a number of side effects including foetal death and spontaneous abortion (more so seen in the first three months of gestation), masculinisation of female foetus , birth defects in babies such as cleft palate and heart defects. (My question is misuse or overuse is around what dose since my obgyn asked me to take twice a day is it safe?)

OBGYN 's  Response

No it is not going to cause any defect in the fetus.

Your OBGYN must have given you the right dose.
