thanks again for your helpful answers.

As I mentionned in my initial question, I had miscarriage 2 months ago.

If I get pregnant this month, are there any checks/controls I need to get it done?

Pls note my mother got pregestrone help during her first pregnancy. Should I get my progestrone levels checked so if I miscarried because of lack pf progestrone, I would be able to avoid the same situation happening.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Regards

Hi,
Progesterone maintains pregnancy.
Yes, you can get your progesterone levels checked and get supplemented in case its level is low.

I hope that answers your question.

Any further clarification, kindly post it as a separate new question.
