Usually morning sickness in pregnancy can be caused by the increase of progesterone, I don't think it hurts. With my 1st pregnancy the dr. made me take Porgesterone suppositories, because my levels were low.

I took progesterone from the time I conceived until I was 12 weeks pregnant becaue I have a dificiency. I took vaginal supositories though not a pill. My doctor said that studies showed the supositories worked better and got right to the uterus faster and stayed longer. 12 weeks is right around the time the placenta starts making the progesterone. I think I had a few miscarriages because I didn't have enough progesterone. It's important all throughout pregnancy.

I took progesterone from week 6 until week 12 or something. It was oral tablets and no one cheked my progesterone levels but I had some bleeding time to time and the doctor told me to take progesterone so I did. I don't think that it will hurt to take them. Ask your doctor if you want to be sure. I hope that you'll have a great pregnancy, good luck and congrats!

I guess I was taking also 200 mg, I used to take one tabletin the morning and one before going to bed. You can take two tablets in the same time, before going to bed is the best time as it makes you sleep.

The vaginal stuff is really expensive, at first our insurance wouldn't cover it and it was about $300 for an 18 day supply. We switched to my husband's insurance and it was covered with a $40 copay.

My doctor has told me the vaginal stuff is absorbed much better than the oral, but if you don't have a difficiency, then the oral is proabably fine. I did have a difficiency. But my doctor also monitored my progesterone levels pretty closely.

My progesterone level was on the low side of normal so my doc gave me progesterone vaginal suppositories to use daily from 12 to 15 weeks. I didn't have any side effects from them at all. Insurance didn't cover them but they only cost me about $35. Not bad, especially if it meant keeping me preggo....which they did!

I used to vag suppositories as well. They are pricey and I could not get my ins to cover them so I had to spend close to $1000 on them. I was told the oral don't absorb well. Good luck with your pregnancy!
