Hello Doctor, I am 4 weeks pregnant now.I had an pills abortion 3 years back and this time I have conceived naturally.The thing is just after seeing my first scan ,my doctor prescribed me a duphaston which when I surfed, found to be a steroid . Will it be safe for my baby?Will it be safe for me??I read somewhere that I can make you excessively fat.Please suggest me what should I do.My doctor did not even check my progesterone level and advised me duphaston. Please guide me with what should I do. Thanks in Advance.

Hello,

Duphastone is not a steroid but is progresterone. It does not have side effects during pregnancy, so you need to take it.

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

Regards,
Dr. Mirjeta Guni, Endocrinologist
