Progesterone and itching
I am 27+ weeks pregnant. Since I have to take a flight day after tomorrow, my Ob-gyn prescribed Susten 200mg for 5 days(one per day) beginning two days prior to the flight. I feel itchy all over. Could it be due to the medicine? Should I be worried?

Hello,it's just a progesterone pills ,it will not cause allergic reaction usually , Breakthrough bleeding, spotting, change in menstrual flow, , oedema, weight changes (increase or decrease), catabolism, changes in cervical erosion and secretions are the side effects ,bit one should not take any chances with allergy, it could end in disaster ,so consult gynaecologist and talk on this before taking off.
