  • Call the and ask for a call back--those are all questions you need to ask your dr.

  • Your doctor would prescribe you something that you shouldn't take if your pregnant. I'm on progesterone suppositories sometimes your body just needs a little more help. You need to ask the doctor the rest of those questions.

  • I was also concerned about the warning of not to take if pregnant but I contacted my doctor and she had consulted with a fertility specialist and he actually gave her the amount and dosage so that made me feel much better. I had to take it twice a day, 200mg, vaginally. Regarding the blood clot, you need to just call your doctors office and check with the nurse. Tell her you didn't have time to get the answer you needed and she will speak with the doctor and get an answer for you or let you know what the plan is. Good luck to you!

  • The good news chance of miscarriage drops drastically after twelve weeks. I don't think your doctor would give you anything unsafe for baby medication wise, but if you are concerned call the office and leave a message. I did progesterone shots during my pregnancy so I'm not familiar with oral medications.
