  • I would think you will be fine. Did they say it is something that is risky?? I hope you and baby are okay. I will pray for you.

  • they said they like the levels to be at 20 and mine are low... it must be something risky if they put me on the supplement... i didnt knwo if anyone else had the same thing.

  • A supplement?? Usually progesterone is in shot form or suppository form. No need to worry about miscarriage. the extra progesterone should help with that, but do not have any sex for the first trimester unless your doctor ok's it. Sex can cause a miscarriage in early pregnancy. ( b4 12 wks.)
