bad news?

Has anyone had to take progesterone during early pregnancy? How did your pregnancy go? I had to take one vaginally per night. I'm nervous about it because I read if progesterone is going down it's not good news. I need to know if anyone has experienced this before.

If I remember correctly I took it for two weeks when I did Ivf with my son.

I started doing weekly shots at 16 weeks I'm 30+3 now. I'm high risk for early labor and the shots help with that.

I am taking vaginaly progesterone 3 times a day, one in morning, at 2pm and 2 vaginalette at 10pm. They are made to protect not to harm so stick to therapy ur doctor prescribed n all will be okey. Now 10 weeks pregnant..been taking from 4weeks and my doc said will be taking till 12weeks as its a high risk pregnancy.

3 years ago I lost a baby because I don't produce enough progesterone.  This pregnancy, the put me on the vaginal progesterone for the first 12 weeks.  I am now 28 weeks and all is going very well.  Baby is measuring perfect and she's VERY active.  Thank goodness for progesterone.  :-)

I've done the shot through all my pregnancies if they wouldn't have given it to me I would have requested it. I actually even took part in the trail period when they were testing it with my first child and ever since I make sure I receive it. I get mines thew the shots tho start next week at 16weeks!! Excited and thankful
