first beta: 307.5
progesterone: 31

so far, so good.

i go back wednesday to see if i've doubled.

my RE wants me to start taking progesterone suppositories with my m/c history. are they going to do damage since my progesterone levels are good?

what do you all think? i don't want to screw anything up ...

Woohoo nice results!! Tons of beta doubling vibes coming your way.

I'm not 100% sure on the progesterone question, but I'm pretty sure you're okay to be taking a supplement even with your levels as good as they are. I'm not really sure on that one though, so it may be worth asking. I can't imagine they would prescribe it if there was the possibility it could do more harm then good.

Congratulations!!

Congrats!!

I would go for the progesterone - it is not going to hurt and if it helps well even better

My progesterone levels have always been ok but the suppositories are just to help encourage the levels to increase to help support the first part of your pregnancy. They will not hurt you while you are pregnant. I've taken them before. They've helped a lot of people. Your doctor probably only gave you the suppositories because they are a fairly light dose.

Im surprised that with it being the first levels that they perscribed progesterone, because your level is excellent. There isnt a need for a suppliment unless your level drops significantly.

Your levels are great, your doctor is just being proactive with the progesterone supplement. It doesn't hurt to take it so why not.
