helps maintain the pregnancy
Hello Mrs. XXXXXXX
Thank you for posting your query.
Yes, progesterone is required in your case, because you had an abortion
already so it becomes important to maintain your pregnancy. You should take the medicine as advised by your doctor.
Progesterone is a hormone which is normally produced by the ovaries, both in non pregnant women and in pregnant women. In pregnant women, the progestorne production increases greatly, this is due to the formation of corpus luteum
, (The ruptured follicle which releases the egg for fertilization), and once the placenta forms that also produces progesterone, because progesterone is required for maintaining the pregnancy till term.
Hope this answers your query, please feel free to get back to me if you have any doubts.
Wishing you safe pregnancy.
