We are seven weeks pregnant after trying for over a year. We miscarried last year after being on Prometrium for low progesterone and infertilty (infertile for five years). Since my local Ob/Gyn is not trained under Dr. Hilgers he neglected to check my levels even after I asked him to. I switched doctors needless to say, one that is pro-life and open to Dr. Hilger’s research. I am having my progesterone levels drawn every two weeks. I am on 400mg of Prometrium (that is how we conceived since he had me on 200mg and I felt that I was still having low progesterone symptoms.)
But now I am worried that they will want to take me off since today I found out my progesterone levels are 31.5 at seven weeks. He really doesn’t know Dr. Hilgers’ protocols, etc. My son who is five years old came five weeks early and I am wondering now if my progesterone levels dropped? I was on 50mg back then until 13 weeks.
Should I stay on the prometrium the whole time? When do I stop monitoring my levels? I am scared! I really don’t want to lose my baby we have tried for 12 years to have a family!!!
God Bless you and the work you do.
