Avoid any medication in pregnancy unless really indicated .This drug is progestogen based steroid used in endometriosis and menstrual disorder.Pregnancy is a natural phenomenon and nature takes care of it so one produce enough progestogens to sustain pregnancy. I don't see any value of using this medication. Some time very light show is very common at this stage of pregnancy this is called implantation bleed. Unnecessary use of medication never brings good so if there are no on-going issues no benefit of its use .
I guess general psyche in Pakistan is a good dr has to prescribe some thing no matter if there is indication of its use or not.
