I took the progesterone supplements for 3 weeks. I am now 8.5 weeks and I stopped taking them due to the fact that I just couldn't deal with the illness anymore that it would bring me. Complete torture to myself it was. My question is... will lack of progesterone stop my baby from developing or just keep me from bleeding?



I really don't want to harm my baby, but if it's just to keep me from bleeding I think I am ok

Having enough progesterone is essential to the health of your uterine lining and keeps the placenta healthy. Did your Dr put you one it? If so I would stay on it unless you want to miscarry or have a preemie.

are suppositories an option? I took supps until the placenta took over producing progesterone. It was at 12 weeks.

That was brash and rude, sorry. I understand that it may not make you feel well, but it's very important for your baby. Talk to your Dr about things that might help with the issues you're having.

he prescribed them because my progesterone dropped to 8 at 4 weeks. I have not had blood work done recently. I guess I will stick it out and start to take them again.
