Can dydrogesterone in early pregnancy harm the baby?
I do not have any evidence that your baby will have come to any harm by your taking dydrogesterone, or Duphaston, in early pregnancy. Dydrogesterone used to be regularly prescribed during early pregnancy and up until 20 weeks of pregnancy, for women who suffered from recurrent miscarriages, and it has not been shown to affect the foetus in any way, although high doses of other progesterones have been shown to cause problems. When you first speak to your GP about your pregnancy, you should mention that you took dydrogesterone during the early stages. He or she can then mention it in the letter that they will send to the hospital, as any information about medicines taken in early pregnancy is helpful.

I got this from babyworld website hope it helps xxx
