Hi,

Susten is a Progestin which is a female hormone. It works by correcting the levels Of Progesterone, thereby stimulating the lining of the uterus to prepare for a pregnancy and protect an existing pregnancy. Progesterone is especially helpful in suspected deficiency of the hormone. This helps in the treatment of infertility and prevents spontaneous miscarriage.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
