I had an early miscarriage (at 6-7 weeks) 7 years ago when I was 19. I am now 26. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and recently decided to start trying. I have been on and off BC a few times over the past 4 years. I recently got off in May and went for a full check-up in June to make sure everything was okay.
Well I was expecting my period on August 9, but was late. On August 11, I took two pregnancy test and they came up with very faint positives. I decided to take a digital one and it also came up positive. I was very excited, but also very scared. Just to be cautious, on August 12, I took another digital test and it came up negative. I was so upset! I started bleeding a few hours later and had quite a painful period with several clots. I have been experiencing swollen breasts and severe moods. I have always been quite a moody person with depressive episodes, which have usually led me to believe that I may have a case of slight bi-polar disorder. These past few weeks I have also had sweats at night.
I recently saw my dr. who believes that I may have low progesterone and quite possible suffered a chemical pregnancy. She ordered me to have blood work done on day 26 of my cycle to see where I am at and plans to prescribe progesterone cream. I am nervous about that as she tells me to take it day 12-26 of my cycle. I do not want this to stop me from ovulating as I desperately want a child! She said she can prescribe me the cream for my obvious PMS symptoms, but that is unfortunately is common for a woman to have 3 miscarriages. I am confused as to what to do. I certainly feel I do suffer from a hormonal imbalance. My periods are very regular, every 30 days and have always been. I want to use the cream if it will help sustain my pregnancy early on, but am afraid it will stop me from ovulating which I do not want whatsoever!
