You read my mind - I had the same question. Obviously this is a little old and few people have responded. My doc also said stop at 10 weeks. I asked if I need to taper off and he said no. He said by that time, the placenta will have taken over, and the progesterone supplement is just a drop in the bucket compared to what is needed. He said if the placenta isn't making that much by that time, it's "not going to last."
That said, I'm WAY too nervous to stop based on what I read via google as well. I think I will continue to 12 weeks. As far as I know, it doesn't hurt (and I have enough pills)....
