Miscarried for the 3rd time. When to start progesterone therapy?
On Sunday at 4 in the morning I started to miscarry. This is my third miscarriage at 12 weeks and 6 days, or 13 weeks. I have been on Bio-Identical progesterone cream for the last year because labs showed a level of 1.2 after ovulation. So this pregnancy according to my labs, HCG, and progesterone levels looked great. My pelvic exam showed a closed shut uterus. So this has come as a shock. I recently read about blood clotting disorders as being a possible cause for recurrent miscarriages. I'm being referred to a specialist and I'm looking into having them test me for this as we would like to conceive again soon. I heard my chances of having a healthy pregnancy are higher, but not sure if that applies to someone that tests positive for these blood clotting disorders. I know I need to be on progesterone even without being pregnant, so I know I need it during pregnancy as well. I'm glad I discovered that. I was on 50mg 2x's a day of suppositories and my levels were fantastic.
I wanted to know if you have any advise for me at this time. When do I start charting my cycles again? When do I start my progesterone cream again? If I do test positive on any of those tests, is there supplements or herbs you would recommend me taking as we try to conceive again?
Thanks for your time,
