It is great that your Dr has caught the low progesterone and you are starting supplements now. With my first, my progesterone was fine. With my 2nd daughter, due in August, I was spotting until week 7 before my dr checked my progesterone and put me on Prometrium 200mg. Spotting stopped after that (until a 14-week scare that was unrelated to progesterone). But Baby is fine. Wishing you a happy pregnancy!

hi, lexsi2201 so sad to hear about the loss but happy that now you have a positive news. My son that I unfortunately miscarried. I had a lower level of progesterone .from that time I am taking progesterone I think this is the one thing that will help me to have a successful pregnancy. I was diagnosed with low progesterone after my first loss each time I knew it was low because I would start spotting. Progesterone helped me. I was little upset at the start.B ut now I am blessed with a beautiful angel. My all wishes and prayers are with you .may you have a successful period of pregnancy and blessed with a healthy child .take care of your health doesn't take too much stress all will be fine at the end. take care !!

I have personally been on progesterone supplements with 3 of my five pregnancies. I was on crinone with the pregnancy before my son that I unfortunately miscarried. My pregnancy with my son I was on prometrium 200 mg daily, baby aspirin and folic acid he is my only successful pregnancy to date. I currently am on the prometrium again with my current pregnancy 100 mg today and my body is adjusting fine. I think this is the one thing that will help me to have succesful pregnancies. I was diagnosed with low progesterone after my first and second losses each time I knew it was low because I would start spotting. Progesterone helped me, my sister and my friend all have successful pregnancies after recurrent pregnancy loss. Best of luck!
