I had two relatively uneventful pregnancies which resulted in two live births. I then went on to have 3 early miscarriages. I started progesterone supplements after my bfp, but it also resulted in my 3rd miscarriage. I started progesterone supplements after ovulation and finally was able to maintain my fourth pregnancy this year.

My question is will I now always need the progesterone to sustain pregnancies?

Idk if you necessarily will HAVE to use them....but once I started getting low prog readings in early preg, it's been that way every time. So that's happened to me with 4 subsequent pregnancies - 1 chem preg, 2 healthy babies, and 1 ectopic. I have heard tho that taking prog won't sustain a preg that was doomed anyway....likewise, it won't hurt a viable pregnancy. Hope this info helps!

Me , 39 years old; DH , 40 years old
DD - 12 , DD - 9 (both from previous marriage), and me and DH have DS - 4 .

After 2 consecutive miscarriages, I went on to have a healthy pregnancy followed eventually by another miscarriage, both while supplementing with vaginal progesterone shortly after ovulation. I eventually was able to find the suspected cause of my losses, which is not low progesterone, but have chosen to take it during all subsequent pregnancies just in case.

There is so little conclusive information out there that I doubt there is a hard and fast answer. It's more what decision you choose to make for your own situation.

Mama to DS1 (12/07), DS2 (4/11), and DD (6/22/14)
Finally diagnosed with APS after 3 s (11/09, 3/10, 7/13)
