I took duphaston too when I found out I was pregnant. Now I'm at 24 weeks and my gynae asked me to take utrogestan after finishing duphaston. He said these meds are 安胎药 and it relax the uterus.

Yes Duphaston is to protect miscarriage of baby. It’s known as 安胎药 in Chinese. Take them if you have been prescribed. I took them when I was around your pregnancy time too.

I was prescribed utrogestan when I went to see my Gynae to confirm my pregnancy. Based on my lmp, I was supposed to be 5 weeks but did transvaginal scan but can’t see anything. Not sure if it’s bcos it’s too early. I’m going to see my Gynae next week. Not sure if I’m going to see a sac next week. Abit worries

I took both before! From week 5 till week 20. Its to stabilise the pregnancy. Don't worry too much esp if its prescribed! Baby is and will be healthy. :)

Don't worry too much. If gyane approve the medicine, it is fine.
