Possibly: There are many unknowns in early pregnancy loss, and its more than theoretically possible that a failing pregnancy could be maintained for a while but Crinone (progesterone gel) support. For this exact reason, I do not supplement until we have confirmed viability in most cases. Very sorry about the loss. ...Read more

Im 6w2d pregnant & taking oral progesterone due to miscarriage & low prog at pregnant confirmation with ob.  My symptoms r disappearing.  Is it possible for progesterone to mask the symptoms of a miscarriage?

No: Progesterone will not mask a miscarriage. Progesterone therapy will seldom prevent a miscarriage. Miscarriages are very common - occurring in 1/5 of pregnancies at least. Most miscarriages are due to large chromosomal/ genetic abnormalities which occur at conception. We have no control over these and they seem to be a matter of chance. If you miscarry once again there are further tests to do. ...Read more
