Pregnant, have black blood spotting since early pregnancy that starts on stopping Utrogestan. Should I continue with this?

Hi, my name is Jodi and I am 16w 4days pregnant. I have been spotting almost black blood since the second month of pregnancy which used to appear maybe twice a week. I have since changed Dr s and my new one did an internal as well as a papsmear and now I have been spotting almost everyday. He prescribed Utrogestan, one in the morning and one at night but ONLY when the spotting starts and when there is no spotting I must not take anything. Well, I have since stopped taking Utrogestan twice and each time I stop I start spotting the same day. Should I continue with this indefinitely? He did say I have a low lying placenta but doesn t believe that is the cause of the bleeding .

Thanks for your query.
Spotting continuously is not normal, and your low lying placenta could definitely be a reason.
Others could be impending miscarriage, deranged coagulation profile etc.
You can take Uterogestan continuously, as it is a progesterone preparation and will support the pregnancy.
Do not exert/strain yourself.
Avoid bending/jerky travelling etc.
Avoid standing for prolonged periods.
Avoid sexual activity for the time being.
Take care.
