  • You have to have a certain level of progestrone to maintain the pregnancy. Some woman's bodies aren't making it naturally (which can cause miscarriage) so if levels are too low in the first trimester, the doctor puts you on it.

  • Some women need it to maintain high enough progesterone levels needed to maintain a pregnancy.

    The majority of women don't need progesterone supplement but some do otherwise they would miscarry.
