Was able to wean off them around 12 weeks. Maybe just have a chat to your ob. Hope that helps. Try not to panic xx
    I’m 8 weeks. Dr Nikos told me to get progesterone injections but we don’t have them here.
    I’m seeing my ob on Wednesday so I’ll continue doing 5, might up it to 6 and will bee what he says then.
    Thanks for that info.

    @Mrsl73, I don’t know if this helps but my docs stopped checking my progesterone around 8 weeks saying blood levels were no longer relevant and that the placenta starts producing progesterone around that time. My progesterone levels were soooo low up until then, never really over 20, which they also explained as the twins taking all the progesterone I had so blood levels were low. To ease your mind could you page your ob to get their view on it?

    My gp said exactly the same, she wasn’t too concerned with the progesterone, she said they really don’t check it or focus much on it, so I’m not going to stress about it

    Glad all is well with bubs.
    Take extra utrogestan and mix it up, try taking a couple orally or analy. Don’t wait you cannot overdose on progesterone nor does it hurt bubs if you take too much. Mine was at 250 one test Dr was fine with that. Better to have too much than not enough!

    @Mrsl73 hi so glad to hear bubbs is well xx I dont have much to add but i have also read/heard many times that at around 8 weeks (edited i said 12 before but wrong)the placenta starts making its own progesterone, if that helps? But also everyone says too much cant hurt, so if it helps your peace of mind i reckon just pop a few more in throughout the day :-)

    Mrsl73 dr LB has put me on progesterone injections... it’s a compounded medication costs around $160 administered intra muscular. So upper leg or butt region. It smells like tuna fish ... not a pleasant one to use. You can’t use it if your allergic to nuts. It’s called progesterone in oil if your Melbourne slade pharmacy.. let me know if you want a copy of my script so you can get your doctor to write it.

    Thanks @Juventina. I’m seeing my ob on Wednesday, I’ll see what he says and take it from there. If I do need them, I’ll let you know. Thanks so much for offering them to me.
    I hope you’re ok. I think of you often xx
