    Progesterone

    I have a new ob gyn since my old one closed his practice. After my first miscarriage we always got me on progesterone asap with my old doctor and now the new doctor doesn't want to do progesterone or see me. I've had two blood draws so far but they aren't concerned w the numbers. Three miscarriages were all from 7-10 weeks along. Should I push for progesterone/appointment? (At five weeks)

    RE: Progesterone

    I have had the same issues with miscarriages. Did they check your progesterone during your blood draws? If not, I would ask for them to check that. If they aren't concerned with your numbers everything may be ok this time. Try to not stress, that will make it worse

        : I made sure that they tested progesterone w the blood work. They made me come two days in a row last week(bc they messed up scheduling but I was free.) it was 22 and yesterday it dropped to 18.9. I'm a little freaked out and the nurse said that the person who was supposed to call me wasn't in today and I'll have to wait for their call tomorrow to discuss it. It is a call back from anyone I'm familiar w either. Still waiting for an appt w my doctor in person.

        : I pray they will get you in and on the progesterone because it shouldn't be dropping. Hang in there!

        : the person wasn't in again yesterday and they just wanted me to go for blood draw again on Monday. The staff is really nice but it sure doesn't seem like there's anyone to talk to w authority/answers. Thank you for your thoughts. I'm

    I have 5 children a set of twins and three single births and I went in progesterone shots at 16 wks until 32 or 35 weeks and was told I will have to get them every pregnancy moving forward. So yes I would push for it with every pregnancy you have.

    RE: Progesterone

    I got the results. Progesterone dropped to 14.9 and hcg is up to 25080. I pushed on Monday in person for an appt and they told me I'd have to wait until results come in the next day. They never called and I ended up writing an email to website for office. I got a call later in the day and just missed it and called scheduling. They didn't know anything except the numbers and I'd have to wait for a call back. I was able to convince them that I needed the ultrasound and set up first appointment. The nurse called me back saying they wanted me to come in this week and I let them know I had the earliest appointment on Wednesday. They said, "well, then we will stick with that." Nobody can give me the go ahead on progesterone supplements yet and I totally have them in the freezer/cupboard from my last miscarriage. Ugh. I'm going to worry/stress myself to death. I have 3 mc's under my belt and don't know how I'll handle another or if I'll keep trying if this doesn't work out.

    I had 14.7 and then 12 for progesterone prior to my appt that I made them set up this week. Heartbeat is there and looks good but has subchorionic hematoma. She wasn't concerned but I am. Should I be?! Anyway, I got a midwife and not the doctor but whatever and had to tell her what had been done on prior pregnancies (why wouldn't they have that information?) and said had 200mg progesterone 2x a day and Crinone vaginal suppository at night and had weekly blood draws and saw a specialist for most of the full term pregnancy. She said that need to take special prenatal since I have a problem metabolizing folic acid and extra folate doesn't work like old Obgyn had me doing and put in a prescription to a "essential living" health-type pharmacy for a 100mg progesterone vaginal suppository. The pharmacist there showed me the inserter and he said to put it as far up as I can get it. Well, I just inserted it and red blood came out on the applicator. THAT does not make me feel better since I haven't had any bleeding yet. Feel like I could have hit the hematoma or something bad. :(. Give me hope someone. I put all of the inserter in and it was kinda long. I just want this baby to make it. It kinda burns in there but I'm keeping my legs crossed and hoping for the best.
