When I was first TTC, I lost my first three pregnancies around the 9 week mark. My doctor wanted to do surgery to find out the problem which I didn't agree with, so I fired him and did my own research. I decided that it was most likely either a clotting issue or a progesterone issue, so with my fourth pregnancy, I began using a natural progesterone cream and took one 80mg baby aspirin each day.
After hiring a midwife team, they told me both were a great idea and to continue until 12-13 weeks gestation which I did. I ended up with a beautiful and healthy girl. That was a little over 3 years ago.
Now we are probably about to have another, but I was wondering if progesterone and clotting issues were something that tend to be permanent with the mother or if it could possibly fix itself after a first pregnancy. I don't know anything about it and everything I read about it doesn't go on to say whether it happens again after any number of successful pregnancies.
Anybody have any experience at all? I don't know if I should wait it out and see or if I should just start taking aspirin and progesterone just in case. I hate the idea of taking something if I'm not sure, but I also hate to think about losing a pregnancy just to find out.
