What did you doc say: Does not look good with that low of Progesterone and u are bleeding, the beta did go up 66% in 2 days but I am sure your doc is having u do another beta and prog. I check my pts every 3 days as it is supposed to double every 3 days but with your history and that prog u are at high risk for another ectopic or misc, u need close followup by your doc as prog less than 5 is suspicious for ectopic. ...Read more

Bleeding week 5-6, BHCG low 300miu/dl. After IM progesterone bleeding decrease, TVUS thickened endometrium, no sac yet appeared. Is this abortion?

HCG 300: With an hCG of 300 it is too early to determine if this is a viable pregnancy with US. Your MD may wish to repeat the hCG level is 48-72 hours. Spotting is quite common and often the outcome is a normal pregnancy. ...Read more

Both of my fallopian tubes were cut, have bleeding, my doctor says my progesterone was low, put me aygestin 5mg for 21 days, will bleeding stop, ?

Both of my fallopian tubes were cut, have bleeding, my doctor says my progesterone was low, put me aygestin 5mg for 21 days, will bleeding stop, ?

Maybe: It will if the source of the bleeding was indeed low progesterone. However, it is not uncommon for period cycles to be anovulatory (no egg produced) in a given month as aging occurs. When that happens estrogen only is secreted and can cause the prolonged bleeding that you have experienced at age 36. ...Read more

Mid way through second pkt of azalia progesterone only pill, bleeding the last 3 1/2 weeks, will it stop?

Mid way through second pkt of azalia progesterone only pill, bleeding the last 3 1/2 weeks, will it stop?

May not: Sometimes a side effect of the progesterone only pill is erratic bleeding, although it can be used to control vaginal bleeding in some limited circumstances.

Need to have a consult with a doctor for specific advice for your personal situation but here is some general information on the progesterone only pill.

I'm on 12day post 5 day transfer my beta is 28.1. Scheduled for 2nd test after 4 days I am bleeding so they increased progesterone to 90mg twice dail?

I'm on 12day post 5 day transfer my beta is 28.1. Scheduled for 2nd test after 4 days I am bleeding so they increased progesterone to 90mg twice dail?

Abnormal: That HCG unfortunately is very low for that time. A normal HCG 12 days after a day 5 transfer is closer to 100. Most likely the embryo was not genetically normal and resulted in a miscarriage. There is no reason not to increase the p4 but likely that will not make a difference. The bleeding is likely not a good sign. ...Read more

No bleeding since 60 days, have vascular bleeding patches on thighs w/o pain, currently no medication, was given short progesterone course, am worried?

No bleeding since 60 days, have vascular bleeding patches on thighs w/o pain, currently no medication, was given short progesterone course, am worried?

Progesterone: Progesterone can take a long time to stop bleeding but is much safer then birth-control pills or high-dose estrogen. I assume your doctor is using Progesterone because you have either a bleeding disorder or history of blood clots or other serious medical conditions. Sometimes surgical intervention is necessary both to rule out hyperplasia or cancer of the uterus and also to more quickly reverse anemia and stop bleeding. ...Read more

I got a negative pregnant test. Was advised to do one more test after 3 days. I'm still on progesterone but I'm having slight bleeding. What does it mean?

Is slight uterine bleeding normal when you cut back or stop using estrogen/progesterone?

Is slight uterine bleeding normal when you cut back or stop using estrogen/progesterone?

Maybe.: Bleeding occurs of the amount of progestin is lower than needed by the amount of estrogen. This is why I avoid combo-pills with both in a fixed dose of patch. It is quite controversial about hrt, but Medroxyprogesterone is not "heart healthy, " why estrogen is. Therefore I use natural progesterone. If your bleeding continues, check with your doctor. ...Read more

These methods of birth control tend to thin the lining inside the uterus. This can result in spotting. It can usually be treated with a low dose short-term estrogen. Consult with your doctor. ...Read more

Can I experience implantation with breakthrough bleeding while taking 100mg of progesterone? Trying to get prego! Taking meds to regulate cycle.

Can I experience implantation with breakthrough bleeding while taking 100mg of progesterone? Trying to get prego! Taking meds to regulate cycle.

Implantation: Midcycle spotting is common but more likely from ovulation than implantation. Implantation occurs exclusively in pregnant people. You can check a test if you miss your period. If negative then the bleeding is not implantation bleeding. Progesterone may regulate the cycle but does not promote ovulation or assist in fertility. ...Read more
