Progesterone and Breastfeeding?

Hi,
Baby measured 6 wks. 1 day. OB called and said progesterone level was low and prescribed progesterone 100 mg 2x a day. I never took this with any of my pregnancies, I did have a loss between my DSs.
 I am still nursing my two year old and am worried that I shouldn't take it while nursing. The nurse in the office said it is fine but I avoid taking any meds while nursing usually. I am torn on what to do...
Anyone has experience with this?
TIA

    I am also nursing and taking progesterone. I figure it's ok because it is just a hormone our body produces anyway.

    I took it while nursing (after checking with my doctor and confirming with my pharmacist) with no ill effects. You could call Infantrisk (or Motherrisk, one is US and one is Canada, can't recall which is which) for extra piece of mind if you like.

    Thank you! Also, I saw it is taken by some women as a vaginal suppository? My dr gave me an oral pill. Is there any difference?

    Do you mind me asking if its an oral pill? I saw some women are taking it as a vaginal suppository. I am just wondering what the difference is...?
