Progesterone and normal pregnancy
In July 2008 I had breast cancer, did chemo and radio therapy, during which I had temporary menopause, but period returned after 6 months. Got the green light from my oncologist to try for baby in sept 2010. In oct 2010, I was pregnant.
In dec 2010 I had a miscarriage due to chromosome defect. So had a d&c. In June I missed my period, and found out I was pregnant, my gynecologist suggested I start progesterone injections 100 mg/ml. Not because i lack enough progesterone, but to be on the safe side. So I did at 5 weeks. Now I am 8 weeks pregnant, and have started getting rashes all over my backside. A gp suggested that it could be a side affect of progesterone. I would like to stop it, as it is causing a lot of problems for me to work. I get really exhausted and am sleepy and now my rashes hurt and are itchy.
If I stop, will it cause a miscarriage? I am 37 years old at present. Thank you.
