long term effects of low progesterone

We just had 2 mc due to low progesterone/high estrogen issues, and the more I read about it, the more scared I am getting. I am optimistic that with progesterone supplements that I will be able to stay pregnant when we're ready to try again, but I'm freaking about about the long term effects of the imbalance. I keep reading about the much higher risk of breast cancer, especially, and given that my mom and aunt both had breast cancer, I was already worried about it. I almost feel like not being able to stay pregnant might be like some sort of natural way for me not to subject another child to what I'm feeling like is just inevitable . I guess I've just always been healthy, and it's not like I thought I was invincible, but realizing that I really could get sick and I have way above-average odds is scaring the crap out of me. I don't know if there's anything anyone can say to help me feel better, but I was just wondering if anyone else feels the same way.
