    Default Progesterone support in a non-ivf pregnancy...

    Well - updating because when I was looking for threads I hated coming across something and not knowing how it ended...
    The progesterone didn't really help... Well. It kept baby in, but didn't keep baby alive. Bub died at 7 weeks, it's been confirmed twice via scan and I started miscarrying today, after stopping the progesterone mid last week.

    So bitter at the world. It was just cruel. I feel like I lost this baby twice. What was the point of seeing the heart beating so strongly at 6weeks when it was soooo unexpected? I guess that's just the randomness of nature/biology...

    They said it was too early to do tests on the baby, but they will run tests on me to see why I'm having recurrent miscarriages.

    I am also 33 and after much testing and almost a year trying it was discovered that my progesterone reading was quite low after ovulation. It sat around the 15-16 mark. My FS (fertility specialist) put me on Clomid and my first reading after Clomid was 69! The second was 49 and that's when I got my BFP

    I just got them from my GP. Apparently the costs are lower if a Fertility Specialist prescribes it, but everyone who has told me what they paid, paid roughly the same as me ($100 for 15 pessaries, which was 1 weeks worth for me, taking 2 daily, but others are recommended up to 4 pessaries a day).

    Good luck.
