  • Follow the advice of your doctor. I do know that the greatest threat of miscarriage is during the first trimester, and you are past that.

  • I was told to stop taking mine at 12 weeks. I was VERY scared but the thing is you REALLY do not need it anymore. Your placenta is functioning now and making the progestrone. Taking the supplement at this point could actually be harmful to your baby because you are messing with hormones that should be happening on their own now.


    I stopped taking mine and everything is fine. I will be 13 weeks tomorrow.
