crap!!!! (low progesterone) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

crap!!!! (low progesterone)

I've been on progesterone suppositories since my trigger a looooong time ago.  I weaned off and had my progesterone tested today and it was 14.8.  They want it at 15.  So, I have to keep taking them and go back in a week to re-check.  Problem is, I'll be laying on a surgical table then getting cut open.

At what point does the placenta take over and prog is not monitored?  I feel like I should know this.

Re: crap!!!! (low progesterone)

  • I thought it took over between 10-12 weeks? I came off my progesterone at 12 weeks, though the doctor said I could stop at just over 10.

  • That sucks!

    Once you hit 2nd tri your body won't depend on the hormones anymore.

  • Thanks ladies.  I'm pretty bummed.  I stopped them at 10 weeks with the twins and was hoping for the same, I guess.

  • My RE told me today that usually the placenta takes over around 8 weeks. She was going to have me stop my progesterone supps at 9 weeks. And I've read it can be anywhere between 8-12 weeks, another one of those things that just depends!

    I hope yours gets straightened out soon though and you're able to stop them!

  • At 10 weeks I went from 200mg of progesterone to 100 mg of it. By 12 weeks I was completely off of it
  • I stopped when my pills ran out (I took prometrium) which was between 12 and 13 weeks.

  • My OB had me stop at 13wks. We tried stopping them at 10wks, but prog level wasn't high enough for my OB to feel comfortable doing that.

  • Oh dear, that stinks! I'm so sorry you're going back on the progesterone.  Good luck with it!
