Hello Peter

During the early stages of pregnancy, just after/post implantation, can progesterone support delay/mask a miscarriage please? the nurse advised that if HCG levels are low the progesterone support may delay an inevitable miscarriage.

Thank you

I had a missed m/c last year and when it was eventually confirmed I stopped taking my progesterone support (and estradiol as well as it was a FET cycle) and I m/c naturally within 48 hours.

I don't know whether it was one or other drug but I assume this is what happened.

Hope Peter can confirm.

Yes, but the hCG levels will decline and this would be picked up by a test.

It can and in this situation if hCG does not rise it is probably best to stop the progesterone.

Regards,

Peter

Thank you
