My question here is if you take a progesterone pill, how much do you take? I don't produce progesterone so they have prescribed 100mg 3 times a day. Because of previous miscarriages, I told the doctor that I had read on the internet that some woman take 200mg 3 times a day so he let me take that. Today he told me he wanted me to go back down to 100mg 3 times a day because my progesterone levels are fine.... Wouldn't it seem like he'd leave things alone if things are going well???? Me and my husband don't fully trust his decisions because one time before he told me to stop taking the progesterone and at the time I tested positive for being pregnant (home test) and then two days later I started to bleed. He said the reason he wanted me to stop taking it was so that he could see where my natural progesterone levels were, it was stupid because he already knew that I didn't produce any.... Reading on the internet, I saw some women post that if you all of a sudden stop taking the progesterone that you could possible miscarry. I'm going to change doctors soon as this one don't seem to read his reports before making his decission.... I believe he just has too many patients and he just fumbles through my reports.... Even the nurse fumbles through my report because she was reporting that I was on some medicine other than the progesterone pills..... She thought I was taking fertility pills..... My husband was PO that they couldn't even read my chart correct..... So you guys, you will be seeing me ask a lot of questions as I don't put 100% faith in doctors these days.

I never had to take it but I do know that they should give you a blood test then adjust your dose accordingly. So if you are not producing progesterone you would get more than say someone who is but producing not enough. If that makes sense.

Well I was on 200mg 3 times a day when he tested my blood and the progesterone level was good so that's why I don't see why he wants me to go down in doseage. I just took another blood test today and tomorrow we'll see what the result are there. The previous blood test was taken Monday.

200 mg - 3 times a day vaginally and 1 time a day orally.

Well the results came back today.... My hormone levels have doubled from what they were Monday and my progesterone levels are out the box...... Guess 200mg 3 times a day was too much..... Levels went from 33 to 128... I'll be back down to 100mg 3 times a day until my next blood work which will be Monday and they also have me scheduled for more blood work Wednesday along with an ultrasound to see how everything looks since I've had some bleeding...... Until then I'll keep my fingers crossed, wear my blessed pendant a friend gave me and keep praying to God, the man upstairs.
