Progestin And Pregnant

I was put on Primolut Progestin to induce bleeding in order to begin ovulation induction. We did 2 pregnancy tests and all were negative. I started the 10 day prescription and then the menses started as expected. Then an ultrasound showed a pregnancy! I am still bleeding but the dr said lets wait to see what happens....Help - will I lose it and are there side effects???

I am sorry for what u are going thru, it must be scary. I don't know about that specific form of progestrin but I was put on progestrin(prometrium) to help sustain my pregnancy. I don't know what the diffrence is but I cant imagine to much. From what I pulled up on the internet it said that this med is a synthetic of what the body naturaly forms and that it is given to irregular women to bring the cycle down by causing a spike and then letting it drop which signals the body to bleed. But if you are pregnant it is in u anyway and ifnu started bleeding they might put u back on the progestrine to help u. I had 2 miscarrage last year and this year I took the progestrine as a preventative and I am 13 wks and the baby is doing great! Is your doc taking blood test and then checking to see if it doubles and also checking your progestrine levels are high enough? If not I would get to another doc asap! u can even go to the emergency room where they would do a ultrasound and check your levels. Good Luck and please let me know what happens

Sorry didn't see that u had a ultrasound....could they see the baby, sack, heartbeat, fetal pole? What did they say about the progestrine?
