Does progesterone cream increase risk of pregnancy?

Does progesterone cream increase risk of pregnancy?

It depends when used: Progesterone supplementation after ovulation can increase the chance for implantation and ongoing pregnancy in women with a luteal phase deficiency (suboptimal Progesterone production).

What are the negatives & positives of taking progesterone for pregnancy? I've had 3 miscarriages. Dr. Would like us to try this when i get next + test

Yes: In this situation, it would be typical to recommend Progesterone for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy as long as evaluation didn't show a different treatable cause for the miscarriages. Imaging of the uterus, chromosome blood studies of both partners and a variety of other blood work is usually performed first before recommending progesterone. Hopefully appropriate testing was completed. ...Read more

Unlikely: Progesterone supplementation is almost never harmful - although if it isn't necessary or helpful i recommend against it. Have you talked with your doctor about this? Have you been evaluated for recurrent miscarriage? Progesterone is only one of several possible causes. As a footnote, for women who need progesterone, taking it orally doesn't give adequate replacement. ...Read more

How long can you take progesterone during pregnancy?

Which progesterone?: You can take Progesterone through the entire pregnancy, but its seldom useful after the 12th week. There is a preparation called 17-hydroxy-progesterone (17-ohp) that is often called 'progesterone, ' leading to confusion. 17-ohp is given in the second and even third trimesters to reduce early delivery - they're not the same drug or for the same purpose. ...Read more
