Is progesterone safe to use for the whole duration of a pregnancy?
My first pregnancy was perfect. Our son was born in June of 2009. However, since then I have had three miscarriages. The first two were both at five weeks. After that,my doctor prescribed 100mg progesterone suppositories once a day until the twelfth of pregnancy. At ten weeks I heard the heart beat and everything was going well. I stopped taking the progesterone at twelve weeks as directed. However, I had my first ultrasound at twelve weeks and three days and a heart beat was no longer detected. I miscarried the baby a week and a half later.
My question is, is it safe to take progesterone throughout your whole pregnancy? And can you use too much progesterone? I would appreciate any advise that you can give me.
