I was wondering if I am lacking progesterone??? I have been coming across things on the internet that says progesterone helps to avoid a miscarriage? Does anyone know if this is true? I do have two miracle kids ages 11 and 12. I just can't believe I had them!!!! Thank God.

Laura, first of all, my heart aches for your five losses. I've had 3 m/c but do have a healthy and beautiful 9 year old that I thank God for on a daily basis. Did you have any kind of testing done to determine why you m/c? During my last pregnancy, my doctor recommended Progesterone cream but I m/c before we could even start that. What I believe it does is help support the pregnancy until the placenta takes over, usually around week 14 I think. I've also heard of women taking baby aspirin. It is supposed to do something for the blood. Anyway, I wish you the best in ttc and you are in my thoughts.

Thank you Elle. I am sorry for your losses too. It is an emotional thing. Hmm maybe there is something to this progesterone. No, I have not been tested. I had three miscarriages in 1990 - 1993. Then two more last year and now. I am going through it right now. I stopped bleeding. And my blood tests showing my levels going down down down. But I still feel extreemly pregnant. All my other miscarriages were different. I didn't feel pregnant right when I started bleeding and knew for sure before going to the doctors. I guess a lot of other woman still feel pregnant after the miscarriage too. It is not fun. Anyway, I am surprised NONE of my doctors tested me as to WHY I am having this. I am going to ask my doctor next visit and see what we can do. Thanks for writing.
