I recently discovered that I am pregnant, and am a little worried. I have had two previous miscarriages; the most recent back in June 2011.
We were able to conceive using Femara because I have been diagnosed with P.C.O.S.
My last pregnancy, and subsequent miscarriage, was a little hard, and confusing to wrap my mind around. We attended an ultrasound at the end of week 6, and there was a heart beat on the scan. When we went back two weeks later, there was no sign of life.
Since then I have been doing research on hormone therapy, and was curious about progesterone, and thought maybe my levels were the cause of my previous miscarriage. I called my doctor the day I took the test, and he is on vacation, and his client list is backed up about a month. At this point, I am very paranoid, and decided to go to a walk-in-clinic to start blood work, and inquire about progesterone.
After giving the doctor a brief history of my fertility gripes, he jotted down a prescription for progestins (200 mg) to be taken before bed.
I am now a little concerned that there was no blood work to comfirm my theory.
I am just wondering if anyone has taken progesterone therapy to sustain a pregnancy, if it worked, and what amount you were givin. I think 200mg is a standard amount, but I would appreciate other experiences on this drug. As well as success stories.
Thanks so much in advance.
