Sorry if this is a stupid question (very tired) is this so be taken once you are actually pregnant?

I got given it at 7 weeks but thats because I went to see a private gynae. I think in the recurrent miscarriage unit they prescribe it to be used after you ovulate.

I was told to use it until week 14

I was prescribed this by the recurrent miscarriage clinic, to be used from the first positive test to 16 weeks. It's not something that would be prescribed without prior loss and complications I believe.

And I had to start progesterone 2 days after ovulation, carrying on after BFP.
I'm in a different country though where we don't go via GPs to see specialists. I just asked my gynaecologist for it.

I took progesterone from the day after I found out I was pregnant until 12 weeks I think.

No history of miscarriage but had previous LETZ for cervical cancer and a shorter cervix length.

Not UK, OBGYN put me straight on it.

I took progesterone suppositories from 5 weeks which is when I confirmed my bfp with my gp. I'd had a previous miscarriage.I'm not in the UK though

Thanks everyone. I wasn’t sure if it was being advised during ttc.

I’ve had two miscarriages (one before and one after my two DC) and also had some bleeding when I was pregnant with DC1. Currently ttc DC3

I've been prescribed it to take every cycle from 3 DPO in case I get pregnant. I'm on my third miscarriage in 11 months after a live birth 3.5 years ago.

I thought it would be my saving grace but the last two (august and September) ended in a chemical and a missed miscarriage at 7+3 so my issue probably isn't progesterone or clotting (also taking aspirin). Hoping it's just pure bad luck and my next will be successful.
