How Does Susten vt Help in Pregnancy?

by Sonia

I have been trying to conceive for the past 2 years, but with no results. So this month we decided to go with IUI done on 19th & 20th of Dec dr. has recommended to use Susten vt 200 for 15 it useful to get pregnant?


Hi Sonia,

Susten is a natural progesterone and does support healthy conception and pregnancy. I would recommend taking it as suppository rather than in tablets. Taking oral progesterone is not as easily absorbed by the body as it as to be broken down by the liver.

Progesterone plays a major role during the two weeks after ovulation because it supports embryo implantation. Most women who have luteal phase defect suffer from low progesterone and recurrent miscarriage. They need progesterone supplementation to ensure that will carry to term. In these cases, the doctor may recommend using natural progesterone through the entire first trimester.

During the first half of the menstrual cycle, progesterone is low and estrogen is high. Estrogen stimulates the lining of the uterus to grow and thicken. When the egg is released during ovulation, progesterone is secreted by the follicle that used to contain the mature egg.

This follicle now becomes the corpus luteum and produces progesterone for the next 14 days of the menstrual cycle. This part of the menstrual cycle is called the luteal phase and it should last for 14 days. During this time the lining receives the fertilized embryo.

If the luteal phase is shorter than 10 days, the embryo may not have enough time for implantation.

By supplementing with progesterone, it is possible to support pregnancy and prevent miscarriage by supporting the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.

Many Blessings!

Pregnancy Test
by: sonia

Thanks so much for this information. We have done the IUI on 19th & 20th of Dec 2011 so when is the perfect time to do a home pregnancy test.?

My menstrual cycle is 32 days & my last period date was 8th Dec.

Also last month my LH was 10.74 & FSH was 4.50 does that mean I have PCOS?


Hi Sonia,

The best time to do a home pregnancy test is about 2 weeks after the IUI procedure. In your case with a menstrual cycle of 32 days, the best day would be January 15 2012.

In order to be diagnosed with PCOS you need to have more testing done by your doctor.

An ultrasound may be performed to further examine the ovaries and endometrium.

Many Blessings!

Sorry to learn that your IUI didn't yield the positive result you've been waiting for, but don't be disappointed.

My wife and myself have been going to a lot of doctors for treatment for the past 1 year.. We spent a lot of money and finally met a doctor that suggested IUI.

We went ahead and my wife did show signs of early pregnancy and we both were very happy.

But to our dismay, she couldn't take it forward due to biochemical pregnancy, which in simple words implies early abortion due to lack of growth at the pace at which baby is supposed to grow.

My wife then felt dejected like you and she took a break for 2 months. We had a few sessions of intercourse and guess what? she is now 6 and half weeks pregnant and its natural, not because of IUI , but because she took a break and recovered psychologically, it worked for us.

Stress, anxiety are part of married life, but get rid of them and just stay relaxed and don't think hard or feel bad about the failure of IUI

If your doctor asked you to opt for IUI, it implies everything is fine with you and your husband and so just pray to god, live a happy life and you will soon see positive results

Let me know if you need any other moral support and I can offer it



I dont want my wife to lose pregnancy
by: Anand

My wife is 8weeks preg. During her 5th week, she had spotting & doc could find cardiac activity. They saw small Subchorionic Hemorrhage and blood clot of 2cc. Doc prescribed her vaginal insertion of susten 200 two times a day and sifasi 5000 once a week. Since then, till now she did not have any vaginal bleeding or spotting. During her 8th week sonography, doc saw that the blood clot had increased to 5cc, but the baby had grown properly as it should. They discontinued sifasi 5000 and now she takes susten 200 injections daily which is quite painful. We do not want to lose this baby. Plz guide.

Hi Anand,

It is very important to follow your doctor's advice.

Many Blessings!

My doc prescribed me susten vt 100 for 10 days. So i used it yesterday at night but large amount of thick white fluid was came out at morning. I am sure it is the melted tablet. Is whole tablet came outside? Then what is use?


It is common for the progesterone suppositories to leak out in the morning. Talk to your doctor if this feels uncorfortable.

I'm 24 years, I have PCOD, I have been trying to conceive for the past 1.5 years, but with no results.
First 6 months I took treatment but no use.
so I went to another Dr., there all tests are done with normal reports.
and they have done IUI also in Aug-2013 but negative result.
I'm fedup with this, so as of now im not taking any treatment.
so Dr. suggested susten after 16 days of periods upto 10 days.

What I can do next? If PCOD means its diffcult to conceive?


Hi Chandra,

PCOD is a condition that needs to be managed all the time, but it does not mean that you cannot conceive. It means you need to work harder of you really want to have a baby.

PCOD is related tomane factors, the most important are hormonal imbalance and insuline resistance. Becaus eof this, you need to know which kind of PCOD you are suffering from because each woman is different.

Stress is also a very important component in this as well.

What can you do naturally to help your situation?

First, tay calp and see things under a positive light. If this is hard for you to do, I would recommend the PCOS for Fertility Program. This mind body program really helps women suffering from this condition approach their fertility with a new spirit. This program helps you feel in control and not a victim.

The next step is to use a natural approach that involves your diet and a natural protocol like The HormoneWise Fertility Kit. Keep your hormnes balanced is the best way to help your body overcome PCOD and get pregnant naturally.

Many Blessings!
