my dr just called today and said my progesterone level was 9 which is very low for being 8 weeks pregnant so he prescribed me hormone pills and i have ANOTHER ultrasound on monday to make sure the baby is still okay (thats 6 ultrasounds total and im only 8 weeks this will be my 3rd ultrasound in a 6 day period thats just crazy) im terrified of losing this baby first it was my uti and now this i really cant lose another ugh. so once again my question is have any of you lovely ladies been prescribed progesterone in early pregnancy and if so what was your experience/outcome?

it made me nauseous, but very worth it. c: my little man is due here soon, he is perfectly healthy from what they see and in the 46% for growth. c: i took it from 5 weeks until i was 20 weeks. good luck mama!

I had low progesterone when I was pregnant with my first and they put me on pills. He is now a healthy, almost 3 year old :)

My progesterone was 9.9 at 4 weeks with this baby. I was put on progesterone the same day I had my progesterone tested and now I'm almost 21 weeks :) The only side effect I had was extreme fatigue.



I also took progesterone with my 3 year old, my level wasn't very low but I had a lot of spotting with her.

how long did it take you to get to healthy and safe level? ive only taken one dose so far my next one will be taken in about an hour and a half i really hope they caught it early enough that my baby will be okay like all of your LO's i really love this site its so nice to have a whole group full of ladies who have had the same issues they originally thought my last mc was caused by a UTI but my new dr (i didnt really hit it off with the one i had before so i chose a different dr for this pregnancy) thinks it very may well have been hormone issues then as well
