Can progesterone suppositories really raise progesterone levels in early pregnancy and keep the pregnancy full term?

Can progesterone suppositories really raise progesterone levels in early pregnancy and keep the pregnancy full term?

Yes and maybe: Progesterone suppositories do raise Progesterone levels in early pregnancy, both the level in the blood, and the amount of hormone reaching the lining of the uterus.

When prometrium (micronized progesterone) stimulates instead of sedates a perimenopausal woman what should be taken? Estrogen in combo with prometrium (micronized progesterone)?

When prometrium (micronized progesterone) stimulates instead of sedates a perimenopausal woman what should be taken? Estrogen in combo with prometrium (micronized progesterone)?

Go see your doctor: While our impression of estrogen for perimenopausal women has changed dramatically over the last decade, it still should be used for right reason, and sedation is not one of them. So go see your prescribing doctor & tell her/him about your side effects so that s/he can offer you some alternatives (rather than just throw more medications at you). ...Read more

Does Clomid (clomiphene) help progesterone levels for a pregnancy@?

Does Clomid (clomiphene) help progesterone levels for a pregnancy@?

Once the corpus: Luteum (maturing egg) starts producing estrogen/progesterone, it feedbacks to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to inhibit gnrh/lh/fsh production. Clomid (clomiphene) selectively inhibits the estrogen receptor in the hypothalmus which 'tricks' the body to release more fsh, which inturn causes growth of more ovarian follicles, and subsequently rupture of follicles resulting in ovulation to increase fertility. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining , but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more

Can Clomid (clomiphene) and progynova make your period light?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) and progynova make your period light?

Possibly: Clomid (clomiphene) is used to stimulate ovarian function and Progesterone is used to try to support the early pregnancy (assuming fertilization has occurred) if the egg is not fertilized then menses will ensure a couple weeks later but it is normally normal to slightly heavy. If it is light, check for pregnancy as it may be implantation bleeding. ...Read more

When the egg matures and releases high estrogen, brain starts releasing LH that trigger ovulation.Clomid (clomiphene) is estr receptr.How come estr surge possibl?

Question?: Each month, fsh is produced that recruits eggs which produce estrogen. The rise in estrogen eventually triggers the lh surge and ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is a weak "anti-estrogen" and tricks the brain into over-stimulating the ovaries and increases changes of ovulation, to put it simply. Your question is worded poorly, but i hope this is a good answer for you. ...Read more
