    Dear Friends,

    I had missed abortion three months before and yesterday I did HPT and it seems to be positive:)

    When I consult a gynaec, she prescribed me progesterone capsules for ten days... I am totally confused after seeing many articles which says progesterone is harmful:(

    Could you kindly help me out please????????????

    Also I am taking the tab orally and I am not sure of the procedure to take thro vagina...

    Looking forward for your help...........

    Hi Uma
    Congratulations on your pregnancy!! Progesterone pills are completely safe to take during pregnancy. Did your gynec ask you to take them orally or vaginally.
    In early pregnancy, progesterone helps maintain a supportive environment for the developing fetus. Eventually, when the placenta is more fully developed, it can produce its own supply of hormones, including
    progesterone, to support the rest of the pregnancy.
    if vaginally then you have to insert it inside when you are in bed. insert it inside and then take rest.

    Dear Both,

    Thank you very much for your wishes and clarifications:)

    I am feeling some what relieved from that confusion...

    Today is my 36th day and my gynaec asked me to do a scan on 10 June. (I am still having a fear in the bottom of my heart due to previous MA:(

    She told it would be more effective if taken thro vagina.. since I am not sure of the procedure, I had taken it yesterday orally..

    Is it ok if we could simply placed in the vagina before going to bed?

    Thanks a lot again for your great help

    Dear Uma
    Many congrats on your pregnancy.

    as hansika and GC said these tablets are absolutely safe in pregnancy and helps to avoid MC.
    Its more effective if you take it vaginally. Just insert the tab deep down and take rest for atleast one hour you can insert it just before going to sleep.

    Take care.

    Hi Uma,

    hearty congrats dear.Don't worry about the past.I agree that fear stays within us, but we have to overcome it.Positive thoughts are more important than anything during pregnancy.Stay confident and positive.

    progesterone tablets are essential if we have any case history.so have them without any doubt.Trust your doctor and leave it to the almighty.If you have any doubts or second thoughts please feel free to ask her immediately.That helps you relieve from confusion.

    All the best for your scan.Get back and update us the great news.Eat healthy and think healthy :cheers

    Hi Uma
    ask your gynec. with your history of missed abortion i wouldn't suggest travelling. I also had a history of miscarriages and my gynec told me not to travel any where till i completed first trimester.

    I second hansika.None of us are quoting in a negative note, but as a pre-cautious matter we have to reconsider traveling till first trimester.Take care

    Hi Uma,
    Hearty Congrats on your pregnancy. A others said Progestrone supplement is safe during preganancy. I was in to progestrone supplement now in 7th month.

    Travelling is not suggested if you have previsous history of miscarriage. So, talk to your Gync. Better avoid travelling atleast for first three-four months.

    enjoy 9 months periods. Take care, eat healthy foods and drink more fluids.
