Check with OB: Any supplements taken during the first trimester of pregnancy should be OK'd by your OB Dr first. Call them. There are a variety of supplements that cannot be taken during pregnancy. If you are concerned about your progesterone level, talk to your Dr about that too. There are specific meds to take during pregnancy to increase progesterone. None of them should be taken over the counter.
