My doctor told me to wean off of it at 12 weeks...and since I never had any problems after the first trimester, I wasn't too worried about it. I do know people who have taken progesterone shots throughout their pregnancy...but I'm not sure if that was to prevent preterm labor and/or for a more significant progesterone deficiency? I've only ever had my progesterone tested with my first pregnancy....the other pregnancies I was taking it as a precaution, but since I miscarried the first pregnancy that I didn't take it....and then had two more miscarriages very early on (even with progesterone)....I suspect that my body must need a little boost in those first few weeks.....and now I'd be too scared NOT to use it....hope that makes sense.
