it seems that your wife may have complained of pain in abdomen and tablets were given to relieve that pain. the tablets do not have any significant side effects so you need not worry the placental location is of some concern - it will be safe to rest on bed with leg side raised, avoid exertion and sex up till delivery. repeat USG after 1 month to see if placenta migrates a little higher, in which case some of the above mentioned restrictions can be relaxed.

The Gynaecologist advised for a complete bed rest and even suggested that my wife should not move even a little. And if she did She would bleed. And advised to take Michelle (Progesterone) tabs twice a day, ISR 40 (Isoxsuprine Hydrochloride, AqSusten 25 (Progesterone) injections. I went to another Gynaecologist, the one who well he is F.C.R.O.G. (UK) he said that don't give any medicines except Folic Acid, and that bed rest at this situation does nothing. Kindly advice me what to do. My wife is very tensed and cried a lot.

this is a little controversial .Actually there are two schools of thought.Both the doctors are right However in my opinion it is always better to be more careful.She can take rest at home and carry on her low exertion domestic activities and not necessarily bed rest.However travelling and sexual intercourse has to be avoided.She can continue with michelle and ISR40injections .You can consult your gynaec and shift to tablets also.Mental relaxation also is equally important
