7 miscarriages all at 5 weeks!

My daughter who is now 5 was born prematurely at 25 weeks gestation. I started to get a very bad lower back pain and then started spotting, my membranes ruptured and I gave birth naturally 14 hours later. Since then I've had 7 miscarriages all around the 5 weeks mark. The fifth time I started charting my basal temperature and I noticed I have a 12 to 14 luteal phase but when my period is due my temperature starts dropping. I start spotting and my temperature keeps dropping until it's dropped below the coverline and I start bleeding heavily and I miscarry. I believe my body doesn't produce progesterone to sustain the pregnancy. I have had othet tests done but they are all clear. I'm from the UK and here the doctors don't believe in supplementing with progesterone to maintain the pregnancy thus they won't prescribe it to me. Do you think the progesterone cream would work for me? If so, when should I start using it and where should I apply it and how much should I use?

Thank you for your time and help.

progesterone for miscarriage prevention

I really feel for the hardships you have been through losing your babies. I was only able to conceive after starting progesterone cream and a doctor in the US helped sustain my pregnancies with injectable progesterone, which I took throughout. Please contact Dr. Thomas Hilgers in Omaha Nebraska. Perhaps they can put you in touch with a doctor in your area.

Good luck!
