Hello all, I don't post much but I have a question. Have any of you ever heard that having low progesterone is herditary? I have had a chemical pregnancy and a miscarriage at 6 weeks and my sister has been ttc for almost 10 years and recently became pregnant but found out her progesterone was only 4, so she too had a miscarriage. I haven't had mine checked but wonder if that is my problem?
Thought I needed to mention that I have 2 DD's with no problems whatsoever.

i dont know if its hereditary..i wouldnt think so but ya never know! also it cant hurt to get some tests done to find out..it may help prevent another miscarriage if you know. good luck!

I don't know about it being hereditary, though anything's possible. I had DS with no problems when I was 28-29. I lost two this year, both had low progesterone, so doc put me on suppositories during the first trimester this time as a precaution. My number came back at 27 w/o the supp's, but he left me on them anyway.

You can get tested and if you tend to have low progesterone, doc will give you a prescription to start so many days post O. Might be worth looking into for both you and your sister. Good luck!

I am not sure either if it is hereditary or not
but I had a healthy pregnancy with my son 4 years ago
last year I had 3 miscarriages ( with a careless doctor )
I went in for testing all test came back clear, ( with a better doctor who cared ) I ended up getting pregnant again and when they took blood work found that my progeserone was really low they put me on prometruim supplements for 14 weeks and now I have a healty happy 22 weeks baby growing inside my belly. So I would def have them test it ASAP.

Good luck with everything!!! Hope this helps
