How much progesterone during pregnancy?
I'm 36 and I've had two early miscarriages in the last couple years (after one live birth) and due to saliva hormone tests, reading, etc. (also was on the pill for 15 years prior!) I have come to the conclusion that it was probably low progesterone. So when I just found out a few days before my period was due that I was pregnant, I went to my doctor and asked for a progesterone prescription. He was leary because his motto is "if it's meant to make it, it will". I personally prefer to do everything I can to help it! So he gave me a presc. for suppositories of 25mg 3x/day (75mg/day total). The day after I started on them, I started spotting and then some watery blood came out. Normally my period is pretty clotty (TMI, sorry). So I took my next supp. and it stopped. Now I'm having on and off spotting. I'm wondering if my dose of prog. is high enough or if I'm taking just enough to wake up my estrogen receptors and be in a state of estrogen dominance? Which I don't want, in order to keep this pregnancy! Should I just start taking more suppositories per day? Should I wait it out and if I start really bleeding, then take more? I bought some cream, should I add that in to what I'm already taking? Help please!
