I am 8 wks pg and have been spotting for the past 3 weeks. Going to a Doc is out of the question so I'm just going to have to wait it out. A friend said that the natural progesterone cream I'm using (femgest) could be causing the bleeding. That seemed pretty unlikely to me but I started cutting the dosage in half yesterday and haven't bled since. Coincidence? Any thoughts or experiences? Thanks, Lynne

No experience of pure progesterone, but DS1 was conceived using the oral contraceptive pill and I bled almost continuously with that pregnancy.
