Thanks for writing to us.
Lupigest is a micronised progesterone preparation given in early pregnancy for a good placental support so that the baby can grow well. It is commonly used in pregnancy and does not cause Trisomy 18- a chromosomal defect.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
