I just found out yesterday that my progesterone is 4.1. I'm now using prometrium suppositories. I have never had low progesterone before but my midwife thinks that's why AF started for 2 days before my body decided it was indeed pregnant! My HCG was 110 on Friday and it had tripled over 3 days! So all is well except for the progesterone. Now I'm trying to figure out how my body is not producing this hormone as much as it should. I charted for 6 months prior and always had a nice climb post-O and a normal fall a day or two before AF. Anyone else?
I had low progesterone with my daughter (found out after I started bleeding heavily at 5w). I used the progesterone suppositories, and she turned out just fine. Hopefully you caught it early and will have good luck like I did! I just got my blood drawn today to check my levels this time around!
I took progesterone with ds & am again with this pregnancy.
I have pcos & it is a fairly common complication with pcos. I'm just thankful we can do something about it.
Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
I'm on 300mg of endometrin a day (progesterone suppositories) ... as I was with DD too. It can mess with your moods, and make you feel a little more sluggish and hungry too. But it's worth it!
