High-Risk Pregnancy

After stopping progesterone suppositories

Did you notice any changes after stopping the progesterone suppositories?  I had 3 previous miscarriages and for this pregnancy was taking progesterone suppositories.  Stopped this week as we were closing in on week 13 and the placenta should be taking over now.  I have noticed my breasts don't hurt, even though they are still the same size.  With my previous miscarriages my 1st sign of trouble was my breasts shrunk over night.  Any thoughts?

Re: After stopping progesterone suppositories

  • Mine stopped hurting too once I stopped, but they didn't shrink.  That was about 3 weeks ago and baby is doing great.

  • I also stopped around 13 weeks and had some spotting in addition to a decrease in my nausea and breast pain.  My doctor said that I would notice some slight decrease in my symptoms since the progesterone can sometimes exaggerate symptoms.  I haven't had any growth in my breasts since the very beginning.

    And I'm a week away from delivery now with a big, healthy little girl!

  • My RE had me stop at 8.5w. I didn't see much change in my symptoms, but my breasts never really hurt to begin with in 1st tri! Can you ask your OB to run a check on your levels to help reassure you that your progesterone is okay. That's what I had my RE do...she said I really didn't need it, but did it anyway to ease my mind!

    I believe i had a bit of spotting for a few days after I stopped my suppositories. but it went away. I'm 37 weeks now.
