Just miscarried at 7 weeks the day after seeing the baby and heartbeat
Hi , I wrote a couple weeks ago asking advice on progesterone supplementation in case of threatened miscarriage. I was six weeks when I started bleeding..no cramping. The ultrasound showed a healthy heartbeat, and a fetus, but also a sub chorionic hematoma around the gestational sac. I knew I was low progesterone because I had a test done the week before I knew I was pregnant. And it was 12.64. We had another test done a week after we found out, and it came back at 5.6. That scared me, and that is when I wrote you for suggested dosage. At the time I was on one pump a day of progestacare plus. I upped it to 300 gr a day of a vaginal tablet called Luteina. ( it is a polish bio progesterone supplement available here in Ukraine). Then night after I had the good ultrasound I had a hemoragh, and was afraid I lost the baby. I'm pretty sure now that I did, but at the time I convinced myself it was the SCH bleeding. After two weeks of bed rest, and taking the progesterone, we went back for an ultrasound, and the baby was gone- a complete miscarriage. No cramping at all the whole time, no clots. It was just the one 'gush'. So I was devastated, because I really thought everything would be fine. Now I am having symptoms of postpartum depression. I am wondering If I need to continue the 300 gr a day, taper off, stop completely? Do I need to go back to a Cycle with the cream? I am very confused what to do at this point. Thank you for any suggestions.
I believe the miscarriage was due to the baby not being able to strongly implant. Obviously I did not start the high doses soon enough. So sad that Dr's don't tell you these things in advance of a tragedy!
