Spotting @8 weeks, heartbeat present. Prescribed progesterone. Can it harm my baby?

No: The types of Progesterone used for this purpose are considered safe. However there is, arguably, little benefit in using it in this situation unless this was an in vitro fertilization ("test tube baby"). ...Read more

Supplements: I strongly advise you to contact the doctor who helped deliver the baby. More than likely the doctor will take care of you over the phone. Please let me know what you hear - we can all learn something. PS; Forgot to congratulate you for new baby! ...Read more

Progesterone level of 14.8 at 6 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this number ok? Baby had a heartbeat and measured perfectly.

Probably ok: Congratulations, you are pregnant! try not to treat the numbers, there really isn't much you can do about it. While your physician may place you on Progesterone supplementation, there is no evidence that this decreases miscarriage risk. That being said, it can't hurt. If the fetal size is appropriate and the heart beat is normal, try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Best of luck! ...Read more

Can low progesterone levels cause a mmc that requires d&c because my body wouldn't naturally miscarry? I was 11 1/2 weeks, baby was 8 1/2.

Can low progesterone levels cause a mmc that requires d&c because my body wouldn't naturally miscarry? I was 11 1/2 weeks, baby was 8 1/2.

Unlikely this case: Very sorry for your loss. Low progesterone levels are sometimes linked to pregnancy losses, but in most women it's a non-isuue. Most all 1st trimester losses (98-99%) are due to genetic causes in the embryo/fetus. A case like yours where the baby is much smaller than gestational age is 99.9% not due to a progesterone problems. Good wishes, hope this helps. ...Read more

On monday my hCG levels were 8300 today it was 8100 they also told me my progesterone levels were low and gave me meds. Is my baby going to be ok?

On monday my hCG levels were 8300  today it was 8100 they also told me my progesterone levels were low and gave me meds. Is my baby going to be ok?

Doesn't look good: The general rule of thumb for Beta-HCG levels is that they should double every 48 hours. A normal pregnancy would have gone from 8000 on Monday to 16000 on Wednesday. This is Thursday, and it is going down - not a good sign for a viable pregnancy (sorry). Be careful, because this could be a tubal pregnancy! You may need an ultrasound to look for the baby. If you have pain, go in! Maybe miscarriage ...Read more

I had a progesterone test on day 23 and it shows 0.7 nmol/l what does this mean and can I get pregnant? My cycle is 34 days. I want to have a baby

Your progesterone: Is low meaning you did not ovulate. Do not panic! you are obviously making estrogen because you have bleeding but it is anovulatory bleeding. Your not in premature menopause, rare at your age. It is likely polycystic ovarian syndrome. It is treatable, see metformin, may be helpful, might need to take off weight. Likewise, if correct, u r at 2x risk of mood, stress issue, sleeping, energy ok? ...Read more
