My midwife suggested that I start taking 2 wild yam capsules each morning and 2 each evening to help prevent miscarriage, and lengthen my luteal phase when we were ttc. I have also been using progesterone cream for the same purposes, and plan to use both until about 14 weeks.
Right now I'm 7 weeks pregnant, and am wondering if I stop taking the wild yam, or miss a dose of it, if it could lower my progesterone levels and instigate a miscarriage? I'm having such bad morning sickness, that I keep taking the capsules, and then choking and throwing them up immediately. I'm nervous that it could case me to lose the baby.
Anyone have more info on stopping the wild yam, or lowering the amount I'm taking before 14 weeks? Bad idea/good idea?
