  • My progesterone level rose from 6 to 10 in less than a week on Prometrium when I was 4-5 weeks. But it definately sounds like you don't need it if your level is 54 lol. What problems ahve you had?

  • Yea I was going to say that sounds normal to me to my dr gave me it for reaccurring mc and nver did blood work ended up in a nightmare I lost the baby but bc my progesterine wwas so high it kept the pregnancy bc they don't tell you all that that hormone is for is to tell your uterus not to shed it does not protect the baby in any other way I waited 2 weeks before labor came and then needed a dnc after I'm not trying to scare you at all or make you think you'll miscarry I'm just saying there's no reason to use it unless you're low

  • I took it when my level dropped from 20 to 15. They never rechecked the levels after i started taking it. My baby was born healthy and full term.
