Susten Pass (German: Sustenpass) (el. 2262 m.) is a mountain pass in the Swiss Alps. The pass road, built from 1938–1945, connects Innertkirchen in the canton of Bern with Wassen in the canton of Uri. A 300 metres long tunnel crosses the pass at 2,224 metres.

The pass is popular with tourists, especially for the views of the Stein Glacier on the south side.

Dear Madam,
My name is XXXXXXX age-29 yrs, weight-56 KG, Height-5 feet 1 inch. First day of my last menstruation was 21 May, 2011. I came to know that I was conceived while testing HCG at home on 9th July although we have not planned. So on 9th July I have visited a doctor and necessary test for pregnancy was done. I was having some kind of pain in lower abdomen. The Doctor has prescribed me Cheri fol tablets on my first visit.
The Blood and Urine test report are as follows:

As per the suggestion of Doctor I have undergone ultra sound for obstetrics on 16th July, 2011.
The report of ultrasound Examination is as follows:
Study: Obstetrics

     As per the report Doctor has suggested me for ultrasound after 2 weeks i.e. on 30th July, 2011 and prescribed me the following medicines on 16th July, 2011:

1.     Two nos Injection Lupi HCG 5000…. One on 16th and another on 23rd July,2011
2.     Susten 200 tablets – one tablet thrice a day for two weeks
3.     Papytazyme tablet – one tablet twice a day for two weeks.


This is my first pregnancy and I don’t want to loose it. I am very much worried and waiting for ultrasound to be done on 30th July, 2011. Is this a case of blighted ovum? Am I taking right medicine. Please suggest me what to do?

I am 28 yrs old, I am married before 2yrs and conceived after 2 months. Because of our situations i have been aborted through operation. And we decided to have a baby from Nov 12 and i did not get periods for 3 months and i thought it would result out as pregnancy, but i was wrong and consulted the doctor, she scanned and told that because of PCOS i could not get the cycle for the last 3 months. And after medication my health is ok now and when i told the doctor that i am anxious to conceive, she has given me Hcg injection and to continuously use folgel, ecosprin and Susten VT tablets. Pls tell me can i conceive atleast with the above.
