Has anyone been given progesterone pessaries in a NON-IVF pregnancy? I have had one miscarriage (first natural pregnancy) & when I spoke to my ob they told me that when I next fall pregnant I could go on progesterone pessaries if I wanted to. I was surprised as I thought this was mostly only given in IVF pregnancies. He said there is no harm in taking them but I read so much conflicting info now I am not sure.
When I was pregnant I was worried my progesterone levels were dropping so maybe that's why he suggested it just so I wouldn't worry. He said that nothing is proven & that progesterone starts to fall as the pregnancy is not viable. He then said that others believe that some women don't make enough progesterone to sustain a pregnancy.
I am so confused. Would u take progesterone pessaries the second time u were pregnant after one miscarriage?
I would prefer to have a natural pregnancy if possible. But then I worry if maybe I don't make enough progesterone that the pessaries could save us having another miscarriage?
Does anyone have any opinions or advice?
