Progesterone is a hormone that is indispensable for the pregnancy because it prepares the uterus to accommodate the fertilized egg. Normally it is produced by the ovary when the ovulation occurs.

Therefore, your doctor is right in prescribing you progesterone as it will increase the chances that your fertilized egg will be hosted in your uterus.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
