You are right.
Your history doesn't say that you have a defect in progesterone
production, and that progesterone intake will have a role in continuation of pregnancy
On the other hand every pregnancy is a valuable one so, if progesterone has a role in preventing abortion
and blighted ova, it should have been prescribed to all ladies.
You may discuss this with your doctor may be he has another reason.
Progesterone has a role in preventing preterm labor
so I'd you doctor sees that you are at risk of preterm labor this may be a good strategy.
Finally I would like to clarify two points:
- Never change your treatment policy without nitrifying you're doctor.
- Progesterone intake all through pregnancy is safe, so don't worry if he insists on his opinion.
I wish you best luck and a wonderful baby soon.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
