I suspect I could be pregnant again, after having two mc's in the last 4 months (10wks & 5.5wks). Just waiting to see if af arrives.
I've been wondering about my progesterone levels & whether that's got something to do with them. So I've been planning on seeing my Dr early this time, to check bloods & ask about getting a script for progesterone.
Trouble is, I'm having difficulty getting an appointment with my gp for the next 2 weeks!
If I can't get in to my Dr until I'm say 5wks, isn't that going to be too late!?
Or should I be trying to get into any Dr at another surgery?
But because they don't know my history, what are the chances of them not listening to me?
How far along were you when you started taking progesterone?
Really don't want to go through this a 3rd time. Not sure what to do & stressing a little! So worried right now...

Questions about taking progesterone after previous mc's
11-08-2015 16:39 #2
Fingers crossed for you Snooze I have seen you pop up from time to time...
I haven't taken progesterone but my OB offered it to me as I had a miscarriage last year. She explained that the latest research suggested it could help prevent miscarriages for those that have had 3 or more miscarriages and no live births. However, they now offer it to all women who have had a previous miscarriage as an option.
I declined as I do feel my last miscarriage was due to embryo not developing properly and not due to progesterone issues. And only having had one mc, I am happy to leave it up to fate.
However if I had more than one I would be doing everything I can and demanding progesterone! I don't think 5 weeks would be too late. I got offered it at 6 weeks and there was no urgency for me to make a decision that day. Is there anyway you can call your doc and explain the situation, get it earlier? For your own piece of mind?

Yes I have been around a bit lately, had a tough time these last few months.
I'm going to call them Friday morning & see if there's been any cancellations I can pick up. I can't really call her, she only does that for results etc
It's only very very early days yet so I'm yet to see what the poas does over the next few days. But just worried I guess.

According to my fertility specialist the relationship between HCG and progesterone is that HCG levels cause progesterone to rise and not the other way around which simply means giving progesterone won't prevent a miscarriage except in very rare cases where someone actually has a problem making it (and I understand this is actually really rare).
The thing to remember is that there's very little that can be done early on to prevent or cause a miscarriage which means as long as you're not binge drinking and smoking then you are doing everything you can and anything that goes wrong isn't your fault.
Miscarriage is such a hard loss though I can understand how worried you'd be feeling, I was the same.
There is some evidence which may be equivocal but shows a slightly increased chance that after a miscarriage the next pregnancy may have a better chance of going to term.
Good luck 👍🏻
