I lost my first baby at four weeks, three days. When I became pregnant again, I advocated for checking my progesterone levels. At four weeks, the prog. level was 18, then at four weeks, six days it was about 17. Still worried, I asked for one more test. At five weeks, two days, the level had fallen to 14. At five weeks, four days, when we got the last results back, my doctor put me on 200 mg pellets of progesterone suppositories twice a day. I was not tested any time after starting the suppositories. I am eleven weeks tomorrow and all has gone well so far.
My doctor has said that I should go off of the progesterone suppositories at twelve weeks. But, since I really had to push for testing in the first place, I don’t feel like I can trust what he says about this issue. I would like to know whether or not you agree with his opinion and if not, what you would suggest I do.
Thank you in advance for your help!
