Supplementary progesterone is often prescribed in early pregnancy, especially if there is a history of miscarriage or bleeding.
After you ovulate, the corpus luteum produces the progesterone to maintain your thick endometrial lining and keep the pregnancy going. By 9 weeks the corpus luteum would have dissolved and the placenta of the fetus should be making the progesterone. You were prescribed progesterone because you were bleeding (maybe your corpus luteum is not making enough progesterone), but remember outside the setting of a pregnancy, supplementary progesterone has many other medical uses. Please your discretion when you google.

Good luck ladies! Some of you are just so close to your positive OPKs!! I am trying to decide what I am going to do this cycle. I am still temping for sure. What I am still trying to decide on is if I am going to use the digital OPKs again or if I am just going to use the cheap ones. The digital ones really frustrated me this last cycle since they gave me the flashing smiley face for over a week, I then ran out of tests before I could get a solid smiley face and had to only use my cheapies I had left over. So I am not sure what to do. I was able to get a lot more bding in before my peak day because of the flashing smiley, but then I didn't get the day before O day because I had to switch to the cheapies. Just want some feedback and opinions on what might be a better option!! Thanks Ladies!!!!

Update on my situation: doctors suspect I did not miscarry completely, that there is leftover tissue that could still be growing, causing the very slow rise in hcg. This may require a D&C, they want to check my levels again in a week to see if something needs to be done. Levels are not rising nearly fast enough for it to be a healthy, viable pregnancy. If my levels start dropping with my next reading, I may not need the D&C, which is what I'm hoping.
I'm just happy to have a possible answer, but hoping I won't need surgery for D&C. I've never been put under and the idea scares the crap outta me! Ready to move past this. This has scared hubby and myself too much to ttc anymore. We'll be starting our adoption process in a couple weeks, to see how this turns out.

Okay so I decided to keep taking the progesterone until I go see the doctor again on the 9th... I'm sure he wouldn't give me something to harm baby so I'm calmed down about it... I mean my levels rose to the highest they have ever been so that's good already!! I'm starting to get nausea in the mornings but as far as symptoms go that's it... My toothache is still here going on day 3 now I'm heading to town at 9 to buy clove oil as it works for my teeth... If no relief by the end of the week I'll go to a dentist
