Hi I am almost 4 weeks pregnant. I have had 2 miscarriages in the past year august 2011 and a D&C December 2011. This pregnancy they put me on progesterone 50 mg twice a day. i been reading and everyone else is higher mg. what does it mean is that is all i am taking and i was also wondering if you would know the chances of have a full term pregnancy taking this medicine. my husband and daughter is ready to have a new baby in the house so i am trying to do everything i can to make this work.thanks for you help in advance.

Hi Kristen Normally 200-600mg/day are given if recurrent miscarriages have occurred in the past. And oral progesterone is the least effective Delivery system. Usually injections or suppositories are used, although the cream is just as effective. Please consider opening the caps and adding the contents to a small amount of oil or natural skin cream. Then rub this on your skin, a minimum of twice a day, please increase the amount too. We do have more info on our Pregnancy page. Take care Wray
