Is BioIdentical Progesterone safe during pregnancy?
I have been taking 100mg of bioidentical progesterone for the past year. My family doctor prescribed it because he said my progesterone levels were low. I just recently found out that I am expecting. I asked my OB/GYN if I should stop taking the bioidentical progesterone and he said I could continue taking it, however, my family doctor that prescribed it said I should stop taking it.
I am now confused. Can bioidentical progesterone hurt the baby? I don't know who's advice I should listen to and I don't want to do anything to harm my pregnancy (I am high risk already due to an incompetent cervix).
Thanks for your help!
