    Default Pregnant again after m/c - but why no progesterone support?

    Hi ladies. I recently posted in here about having a m/c in dec, at 6 weeks (although I believe it was a blighted ovum as only a small gestational sac was seen). I had been taking hcg injections after o to support a very short luteal phase. Well I am pregnant again, bt show my hcg has doubled, i'm nearly now 5 weeks. I am wondering though why my fs didn't think progesterone support was required? I have never got to discuss the m/c with him and when I left a msg querying with him, I just got a msg on my phone describing progesterone support as "hocus pocus". I would have thought that if I was being treated for low progesterone before conception, it should continue for 1 st tri? Or am I completely wrong? Thanks

    Once you ovulate the corpus of the egg and follies left start to produce the progrestrone and you will only require to take extra if a bt deems it low. If you are worried then I would ask for a p4 bt at your next appointment. I had fantastic progrestrone with DS pg but terrible with this one! Your short lp has been managed with the HCG shots now your body 'should' do what it is meant to. But we all know how our bodies like to play games at times.

    Again get the P4 bt even if to just put your mind at ease

    Oh I should add some dr believe that supporting a pg with progrestrone is only prolonging the inevitable and that low progrestrone is a sign that it is a non viable pg. others believe it roll support and give hope to a full term pg. I have heard of the later and hope it to be this in my case.

    I was concerned about this after 2 m/c but my ob had similar thoughts. He said it was controversial and there was no proof it helps? Good luck with your pregnancy. I'm pregnant again & currently 17 weeks & from the beginning my hcg levels were much stronger.
