I am also taking progesterone mg orally since I had a miscarriage last baby, my doctor said he just wanted me to take them and I have a friend who did ivf she takes the suppositories and a shot in the butt.But your dr office should advise you if you ask.

It has not been scientifically proven however, progesterone is given to mother's (especially if they have a history of miscarriage) to sort of help the baby "plant"in the uterus. I am taking it since I was 4 weeks till I am 12 weeks....

Last year, I lost my baby to miscarriage in 9th week. I was taking progesterone tablets as advised by a doctor but suffered a miscarriage anyway so I would suggest be very clear about this medication , ask the doctors in detail about this medicine. I was taking 3 tablets a day.

I am 40, so my doctor prescribed 200mg. I am 15 weeks today, but will finish my course by this week. He explained to me that the progesterone ensures that the cervix is closed properly, as at my age, those hormones aren't produced as well sometimes as when you're younger.
