I am currently 11 weeks pregnant thru IVF and was told to stop all estrogen and progesterone.Is it safe to stop? And when does the placenta take over?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Now

By 11-12 weeks the placenta is producing its own progesterone.
This is why you were directed to stop the hormonal supplementation. As always follow your doctors directions.
