Mommas who are on extra progesterone, when are you guys stopping? My RE said 10 weeks, but some "answers" on google and a few friends said 13 weeks. I did read 10 weeks online also, but still super paranoid after 3 consecutive losses. So, when are YOU stopping?!

I will be on it until just shy of 12 weeks.

Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.

My best friend is taking it and goes to the same OB as me. She asked last week and was told she would be on it until 20 weeks. I have an appointment on Wednesday and plan on finding out how much longer I will be on it. I'll let you know after Wednesday.

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)....

Just lurking, my RE said I could stop at 11-12 weeks but no harm if I wanted to take a bit longer, so I opted to take until 13 wks.
