Re: Progesterone Questions

I guess my progesterone use is a bit different because the obs want me to take it from week 16 onward. But I've been researching it A LOT and it does seem to have some adverse effects like late term miscarriage, stillbirth, GD, pre e, etc. I would definitely ask to have a blood draw to determine if I needed a drug before I just used it.

My guess is you were on hydroxyprogesterone injects, which is different than the progesterone you take early in a pregnancy.

I called the office and their policies have changed. Since I haven't seen them for this pregnancy yet they cannot give medical advice over the phone. I chose to pick a different dr in the practice (not the one I saw last time :-/) so that they can review my chart and get back to me. When they call me tomorrow I am going to ask to be tested for low progesterone first to see if its necessary at all anyways.

The few people we have told about the pregnancy tell me to stop worrying and just let things happen and know that God is in control. While I do believe that with all of my heart, I also know it will still break my heart if something were to happen.

I guess I just am having a hard time trusting that my body can do what it's supposed to after two back to back losses and then my son having his heart defect :-/

Re: Progesterone Questions



Being worried is totally normal, especially given your history. Take comfort in the fact that you're being proactive and seeking help for suspected problems (like low progesterone). At a certain point you do have to trust that things will be okay, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with pursuing all your options and doing what is in your power to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Take care of yourself, eat good food, and get plenty of rest. I hope you get seen soon so you can get some answers and maybe a little peace of mind.
