Progesterone Supplementation

Julymommy2b - October 16

I spoke to someone today who told me she was given progesterone shots after she found out she was pregnant. Does anyone know when it is necessary to do this ? I am two weeks past conception and my level is over forty which I was told is good. Even though, I worry about miscarriage ( had one 2 months ago) and am debating asking my doc about this. What do you all think?

If your progesterone is over 15 (or 20) depending on your OB, they will not supplement with progesterone. That would be overkill! So you are looking fabulous with levels of 40 that early on. My levels went from 22.4 down to 13.7 in my first week of pregnancy, so I am now on 200mg once a day prog suppositories. My levels went back up to 24.8 after just 4 nights of the supp. Praying they keep rising! I'm now 5 wks and 4 days.
