hemorrhage and emergency surgery

Hi Wray,
I love your hard work and passion to help others. Your site is incredibly informative. I have a question. I am 43 and miscarried at 10 weeks (it turns out it was a blighted ovum) and hemorrhaged for 15 hours and then had emergency surgery (D&C) which has controlled the bleeding. I was on the progesterone cream (80mg) daily. Forgot to take it to the hospital and have not had it for 2 days. My question is, is it contraindicated at all when you've had a hemorrhage, can it start the bleeding again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Maggie Bless you for the kind words, sorry to hear about your miscarriage and the haemorrhage. Progesterone is not contraindicated, in fact it helps heavy and/or continual bleeding. We do have a page on Menstruation you could look thorough. At the end are several nutrients to take which all help, often progesterone alone won't be enough. I have found that 400mg/day and more are needed though, 80mg will not touch sides. I assume you wish to fall pregnant again, so please take a look at our page on Pregnancy and another here. Vitamin D is essential, please have a test done. Take care Wray
