No: Clomid (clomiphene) does not increase the risk of miscarriage but those undergoing treatments for infertility may have an baseline increased risk. Some doctors recommend waiting 3 months. Others do not. In your care you will need to discuss with the prescribing physician as each case can be individualized

Yes: Low Progesterone in 1st trimester means that there is either something wrong with the pregnancy, or production of progesterone. From the ovary. Very often supplemental Progesterone will help. In a woman of 40+ usually there is a chromosomal defect, and a miscarriage will occur. I suggest screening both partners for chromosomal defects; if normal give Progesterone from ovulation.

No: Prenatal vitamins are safe to use during pregnancy. Some brands may be more tolerable to the GI tract than others. This is especially true during the first trimester when some women have nausea a vomiting. These patients may need to try different brand before settling on one.Prenatal vitamins should contain Folic Acid which helps to prevent spina bifida.
