Duphaston
Hello! I am 4 weeks pregnant and my doc prescribed me Duphaston (synthetic progesterone) twice a day, for safe pregnancy. I've read that Duphaston is a bit harmful for the fetus. Is it true?

I presume that this was done because you have had a previous miscarriage or bleeding in this pregnancy. All medications in pregnancy need to weigh up the risks versus the benefits. Duphaston is, however, regarded as safe in pregnancy.
