does taking progesterone suppositories early in pregnancy help prevent a miscarriage?

Sometimes: In some women, repeated miscarriages are caused by a lack of progesterone in early pregnancy. These women can often carry the pregnancy if they are given progesterone supplementation such as progesterone suppositories. Best wishes!
