Don't know anything about using the creams, but my post menopausal friend recommended this to me for regular female health (I'm only 27)...

http://www.amazon.com/Emerita-Pro-Gest-Natural-Progesterone-Paraben-Free/dp/B000IMQE5U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1350673996&sr=8-1&keywords=progest

 

I think it is fine for pregnancy too. Double check the ingredients though.

The Emerita is the one I used to save the two babies I do have...after that, I switched to a different brand, and I have lost every single baby since then...maybe just a coincidence, but maybe not. It never registered until right now.

joyfammama, what do you mean save, if you don't mind me asking?

I've lost two pregnancies since my boy was born 2 years ago, and both times I cramped and barely spotted pink for daaaaays until I started to miscarry. I asked if I could do anything once I started cramping and they were like "huh, well, no." no hormone level testing or anything. They say there's no reason to think there'd be a fertility problem because I carried my son to term a few years ago. 

 

My question really is, should I have this cream on hand next time I get pregnant?

I mean, I'm as sure as I can be that the two babies I do have I would not have had if I had not used the cream. Every time I cramped and/or spotted, I would put some cream on, and it would stop within minutes. I had to use it for about 2-3 weeks and then I was able to stop (at about 10 weeks). Does that make sense?

A lot of sense! and I'm glad I came across this. I lost mine both between 8 and 10 weeks and they told me my uterine lining was probably not thick enough and better luck next time. I'm definitely going to get the cream next time.

From what I have researched it is good to start using the cream a few days after ovulation even, or at the latest the day you get your BFP. Then use until 10-12 weeks, because stopping may cause miscarriage. It is one of those things, you don't know for sure if it helped, but it can't hurt so why not try it! I used it for my first pregnancy, now using it this cycle (7DPO) hoping for a BFP.

I think you're right, flyabuv. It's not been very wise of me to wait until I start spotting to use the cream. However, I only recently learned about how many women start to use it 2-3 DPO (often shots or injections), long before they ever have any concrete idea whether they successfully got pregnant or not.

I hope you don't mind me posting here...I just happened to be searching for something and this came up.

 

I just thought I'd share that I've used progesterone cream for many pregnancies (both successful ones and losses).  I try to find a cream that lacks estrogenic ingredients (this site has some listed- http://bioidenticalprogesterone.info/miscarriage.html).  I generally wait until a confirmed ovulation, so 2-3 days after, but I have started it before I actually ovulated and it didn't mess anything up.  I have always used 2-3x the "normal" dosage, and at least twice a day. 

 

However, now I don't just rely on the cream, but I take Welcome Womb, too.  I figure I can only benefit from the added help.
