Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

I can understand your concern for the spotting as you had a recent miscarriage in January. You have been prescribed the right treatment. Sometimes spotting happens in pregnancy which may be indicative of a threatened abortion.

Susten contains micronized progesterone and is often prescribed in pregnancy to maintain pregnancy. What happens is that during the first three months, progesterone is produced by corpus luteum after which placenta takes over the responsibility of progesterone supply to the developing fetus from the fourth month onwards. Once placenta develops it takes over the responsibility of producing progesterone which is vital for sustaining pregnancy. Progesterone is important because its deficit may cause intrauterine death, premature labor, threatened premature labor, premature rupture of the membranes, amnionitis and abruption of the placenta.

You should follow your doctor's advice and take the injections as prescribed. Also take complete bed rest, avoid lifting any heavy weights, climbing stairs or any intercourse till the second trimester.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
