I am supposed to start using it today and on through till the doc runs a blood test to see if I'm pregnant. He said AF won't come until I stop using it but I thought I have read here about some taking it to start AF. Confused.

After you ovulate your progesterone levels climb. Once they drop is when you get your period. It triggers the shedding of the uterine wall. If you are pregnant your progesterone level will not drop. It will continue to climb to sustain the pregnancy. I will be gettin progesterone injections from my doctor to supplement because my last son was born at 28 weeks so we are trying to prevent another premature birth. Until I get the injection I am using the cream 2 times a day just in case. Hope that helps.

Thank you. So if my doc has me on the cream now would I keep taking it if I end up pregnant?

Honestly I cant be sure. I am using it because of a previous premature birth. It will be up to your doctor based upon th reason he has you using it.
