Progesterone and Pregnancy
How Compounding Can Help You Navigate Through A Successful Pregnancy
One of the important hormones produced by the ovaries is Progesterone. Progesterone plays an essential role in in the process of reproduction. Many OBGYN doctors and fertility specialists prescribe Progesterone to women with a history of recurrent miscarriages. A miscarriage occurs in 15%-25% of clinically recognized pregnancies.
Risk Factors for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
The diagnosis of recurrent pregnancy loss can be made when a woman loses two or more pregnancies under similar conditions. Recurrent pregnancy loss takes an emotional toll on couples. In most cases, these couples are desperate and willing to try any treatment to improve their chances of having a child.
Some of the risk factors for pregnancy loss are:
- Mother’s age over 35 years
- Father’s age over 50 years
- Increased alcohol
- Increased coffee consumption
- Environmental factors
- Chronic Endometritis*

Approaches to Preventing Pregnancy Loss
However, in at least 50% of cases, no factors can be identified for the pregnancy loss. In these cases, the diagnosis of idiopathic pregnancy loss is made. Various approaches to preventing pregnancy loss have been evaluated for these patients. Aspirin, Heparin, Steroids, Intravenous Immunoglobulin and Immunization with father’s White blood cells have been tried. None of these methods seem to offer great results in preventing a miscarriage.
Progesterone as Treatment
The good news is that one large study has reported a higher live birth rate with progesterone use. According to this study, the only treatment that can be recommended for the management of idiopathic recurrent pregnancy loss is progesterone. Progesterone use should be given to the patient starting at ovulation time.
Progesterone Dosage Forms
Progesterone can be administered as an oral capsule, flavored lozenge, vaginal suppository, topical cream, and intravaginal gel or cream. Your doctor will evaluate your particular situation and decide the appropriate dose as well as the dosage form that would be best for you.
