I am 6 weeks pregnant. I was prescribed duphaston after experiencing some light spotting (after a consult with my GP it was concluded that this may have just been from the yeast infection I have) Should I take the duphaston or not? Is my embryo at risk???

I was also on Duphaston during my second pregnancy for the first trimester only. Had a miscarriage in July last year and that' s why my gynae put me on Duphaston. It' s definately safe and will not harm baby!! As a result of me being on Duphaston, I am 16 weeks, 3 days pregnant today and baby is healthy!!
Good luck and don' t stress!! Enjoy!!
