Does the method of progesterone therapy make any difference?
My first pregnancy was perfect. I am carrying my second pregnancy. In the 8th week I had some bleeding, like dark clots. My doctor recommended bed rest for two weeks and progesterone inserted into the vagina.
During these two weeks I had no spotting at all. Two days after I stopped the inserts the spoting began again. At this time I saw another doctor who gave me progesterone injections and a 10mg pill x 2 a day and bed rest. It has been 3 days now and I am still spotting.
Will this spotting and taking of progesterone have any effect on the health of the baby? Why am I still spotting? Would a doctor give me the unnatural 'progestin'? How can I be sure I have been prescribed the good natural progesterone?
Please advise asap. Thank you.
