Progesterone

I had a miscarriage before and am pregnant now. That's why I am on Prometrium now even though my progesteron level is fine. But on the precautoins it says not to take it, if you are pregnant and I found out that it could cause genital abnormalities in fetus. Should I still do as the Doctor says?

I have been reading and am on synthetic progesterone because it is low at 5 weeks. I am switching to natural per these two links. I think you should slowly stop and switch. http://www.geocities.com/happypregnant/ http://www.goodbyepms.com/progest.htm

By stopping the progesterone doesn't that drop your progeterone levels quickly signaling to your body to start your cycle????

Actually Prometrium IS a NATURAL progesterone it is NOT synthetic! I had to take if for the 1st 12 weeks of my last pg. which was the first pg after 2 miscarriages to be successufl and now have a wonderful 2 1/2 year old son. I just found out I am pg with #2 and am on prometrium again! I don't even know my progesterone levels yet...I will find out tomorrow but until then I'm taking it to make sure. The only thing I hate is the dizzyness and drowsiness I get!!

Natural progesterone (including Prometrium) is safe during pregnancy. Synthetic is NOT. When I got my prescription it had the warnings about not using during pregnancy, but I researched it and learned it is the synthetic that is unsafe for the fetus. The pharmacy just slapped the warnings on there without doing their homework!

Its pretty scary to hear about low progesterone. I recently found out my levels were low so I'm petrified. It's not enabling me to fully enjoy the experience I am worried too much. Well hopefully our doctors know best. My doctor has me on progesterone supossitory. Has anyone trie d that and does it work?

Yes. The abnormality is only for males and it is very easily fixable. It was the different between having a baby and not for me.
