  Due Date Club January 2007: Susten tablets - help req from archie and all
Name: Viji
Date: 2006-11-27

I am 26+ weeks preg with twins. I have been put on Susten-300 tablet (orally) from the 2nd month onwards till now by by doc as i have atleast 2 fibroids in my uteres and also bcos this time it is a twin preg (earlier daughter 4 yrs old).

Can someone throw some light on how safe/unsafe it is to have hormonal tabs for such a long time during preg.

I am due in feb end but doc says anytime after feb 1st is possible.

Thanks in advance,

I think 26 weeks is a too long for susten treatment. Can you request your dr. to check your progesterone levels and decide on Susten to continue or stop.

It is OK for twins to deliver anytime after 34 weeks.

Hi Viji

Refer to some earlier messages on the Feb07 board about Susten. There are some inputs from Archie about the tab. Some unconfirmed reports from the USA that susten is linked hirsutism in female babies. Some alternatives u could explore are: Gestone. Check with your gynaec about whether its ok to switch to Gestone?
Please check with Archie about the effects of taking susten/hormonal tab for long. As long as your Ob/gyn has prescribed it - u shouldn't worry too much.
have a safe and happy pregnancy.
