26 and 7 miscarriages
Okay, long story...
I started my period at a very young age, I was 10, it was regular until I was 13 and then I was put on birth control because I didn't stop bleeding for a month (they did all the internal ultrasounds, etc... which are not fun @ 13 when nothing has ever been up there). At the age of 16 I went on the depo shot, I got off the depo after I gained 60 pounds in a year from it. I took myself off completely from birth control for a year and became pregnant and lost that pregnancy. I went to a pretty good obgyn who told me I am not even supposed to be on any form of birth control - I have severe migraines w/ auras and that puts me at an increased risk of stroke, etc. So 4 more miscarriages went from the age of 18-22, it made me sad but I didn't seek out a crazy amount of medical advice because I really didn't want a child then.
I got married at 23 and a few months after I became pregnant. Lost that one at 9-1/2 weeks. I went to a specialist that time, he ran a HUGE panel of tests (the genetic testing etc...) and told me that when I got pregnant I would need to immediately be put on Heparin and Baby Aspirin. I got pregnant again about 2 months ago and lost that one at 4-1/2-5 weeks, I immediately started taking the Heparin and baby aspirin-it didn't work :(
Here's the issue. I have a period maybe 3 times, 4 if I'm lucky, a year. I have the excessive facial hair growth, all the weight I have sits on my hips/ab area, etc. Is it a progesterone deficiency? My aunt had several miscarriages and always told me Progesterone was her savior and was what allowed her to have two sons. I went into the local Herbal store and the lady there told me it was Progesterone that I needed and I bought some cream.
I've been reading this site continuously for like a week through all the FAQs and I'm still confused about when I'm supposed to start taking it if I have absolutely no idea when I ovulate! And then if I'm on the cream if I'm supposed to stop won't I just miscarry again?
Okay, sorry for being so long winded, just wanted to fully explain my story and ask my questions. Thanks :)
