I was just wondering whether your OB's waited until you were 6 weeks along to prescribe you progesterone? I talked to the APRN at my OB's office & she said they don't tell you to take it till 6 weeks, but if I am remebering correctly, last time my OB prescribed it right when I found out, which was about 4 weeks...

Should I demand to get it already if she wants to wait?

My doctor actually had me start it 3 days after I ovulated, with instructions to stop it if AF came, or stay on it through week 9 if I got a BFP. In the past, I've had trouble with starting/maintaining a heart beat and usually miscarry by week 8. His hope is that the extra progesterone will give us the support we need to carry us until the placenta takes over.

I got it before I even got my blood work confirming the numbers. I was to fill it if it came back positive and start right away, which is what I did.

I had to start mine as soon as I got a BFP. I would ask to see if you can get early.

My doctor wanted me to take it the minute I got my BFP. I don't know why they would want you to wait? I've already been on it for weeks now. If it was me, I'd tell them I wanted it now.

I've never taken it, but everyone on here that I've seen has either taken it the minute they get a BFP or about 3 DPO, stopping if AF shows. I'd try to get in sooner!

I was advised to take it the minute I got a BFP. I started taking it the day I found out.

I took mine from 3 DPO until AF showed (or was scheduled to show). IDK why your dr would make you wait until 6 weeks along...IMO it's not helping anything to start it at that point.

My dr prescribed me to take it 3 days after ovulation. Since I wasn't actually trying this time, I started taking it the moment I found out I was pregnant. If I waited until 6 weeks, I would lose the baby....

I did get it My OB said they should have just prescribed it for me the day before (she wasn't in the office that day)! So I started taking it last night!
