I have had a history of early miscarrages (3 in the last 2 years at about 6 to 7 weeks. I am once again pregnant and really want to keep this one. I called my doctor and he put me on 400 mg of progesterone daily. Is there anything else I can do to have a better chance of keeping this pregnancy?
Any suggestions will help. Thanks!

Have they done a miscarriage workup to make sure that you don't have any other problems? the supps will help if the problem is a luteal phase defect. But are they sure that your problem isn't a clotting issue, or something else that could be causint them? I've had two, both early, but my miscarriage workup came back negative on all counts so it was most likely my age.

Yes I believe after my last miscarriage my doctor did blood work. I am not sure of the results. He just told me to call him asap if I turn a test positive. Tonight at dinner I became very dizzy and thought I was going to faint. My husband took me home and I was able to lie down. I now feel better but am worried about taking the medication tomorrow. Does anyone know if I can take a pill in the morning (200mg) and then a pill at night (200mg)? Today I took 400 mg at lunch. Thanks for your reply

Sweetie, if the progesterone is making you that dizzy you need to tell you doctor immediately. He can maybe tweak the dosage or change the type. I wouldn't split the dosage without his consent.

D. thanks for your reply. I did talk with my doctor and I now take it at bedtime. Last night went pretty good. It is hard trying to be positive fearing that I might miscarry again. So far everything looks good. Hope things continue that way.
