Frequent miscarriages and now on Progesterone
I am 41 yrs old. So far I have had 2 late miscarriages at around 14 weeks and a couple of very early miscarriages.
I was supposed to be seen and tested at a medical centre for women with frequent miscarriages when I found out that I was again pregnant. As a result they were not able to perform those tests. My doctor agreed to put me on progesterone starting around week 4 of my pregnancy. I would take two vaginal pills every day. I am now in my 10th week and she told me that I can lower the dosage to one pill/day for this week and stop taking them by the end of the 10th week.
My questions are:
1. I read on your website that the Progesterone therapy should be continued until at least 4 months. Isn't 10 week too early to stop the therapy then?
2. I have no had any tests so far (before or after pregnancy) to measure me progesterone levels. Is there a blood test for this? and if yes would it make sense to have it done at this point and would it tell my doctor whether or not the therapy should be continued?
Thank you for your time and looking forward to hearing from you.
