Progesterone to avoid miscarriage - caps inserted vaginally

My wife's doctor prescribed progesterone capsules for my wife to help her avoid a miscarriage, after we lost the last two babies within 2 months or less.
He told her to insert the capsules in her vagina, whereas the info sheet only mentions oral, and from the internet we found that there are progesterone gels intended for vaginal insertion.
Question: is it ok (effective and safe) to follow the doctor's instructions to insert the capsules in my wife's vagina? My wife called the doctor back when she saw that the info sheet only mentioned oral use for the capsules, but the doctor insisted it was ok.
