I'm 11 weeks with an IVF baby. I had progesterone supplementation from before the transfer and at 8 weeks my OB said it's OK to go off. I started spotting and then bleeding quite heavily at week 9. I forced the MD to test my progesterone and it was at a 9. From the research I've been doing, 9 is low at 9 weeks. I went back on my progesterone supplements and have had no cramping or bleeding.
At the MD at 11 weeks she says I can go off the supplements again. I really believe I suffer from low progesterone and that going back off the supplements will cause cramping and bleeding again. Doctor says they won't test my progesterone levels because if they are seeing a heartbeat my progesterone is fine. UGH. I want to trust the doctor but I just wish they would test my levels so I could feel better about going off the supplements.
Had anyone suffered from low progesterone and been on supplements past 12 weeks? How did your doctor deal with the low levels, did they test you regularly?
