Swallowed progesterone vaginal inserts, is it harmful?

I have 17 week pregnancy and have low placenta problem. Doctor advised me to take progesterone vaginal inserts susten vt 200. By mistake I have swallowed that medicine instead of vaginal insert. Is it harmful for my baby or for me. Please suggest what should I do?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Progesterone can be taken orally as well as can be used vaginally,so no harm. Absorption is almost equal from both routes.
