12 weeks preg after 3 miscarriages
I am 32 and have a healthy 7 year old son and then I had 3 miscarriages. (2 at 10 weeks one at 14 weeks).
After the first two my doctor suspected a progesterone deficiencey. So with the next pregnancy, he started me on progesterone supplements. He kept me on them until I was almost 14 weeks. As soon as he took me off the supplements I miscarried. (a miscarriage at 14 weeks really sucks btw).
This time I am 12 weeks and he started me on progesterone supplements (oral) again as soon as I found out that I was pregnant at 7 weeks. (I have PCOS and my cycles are around 60 days in length, but I still ovulate around the normal time). He has been testing my progesterone levels twice a week (blood test) and says he will keep me on the supplements until my levels say its time to get off or around 16 weeks????
He does not want me to continue on progesterone for the entire pregnancy because he says it can cause problems with the baby's genitals. But I'm sure you can understand my apprehension of discontinuing the supplements.
