Missed Miscarriage after ivf - keep taking progesterone or stop?

We found out today our baby has no heartbeat (I was 7 weeks with an ivf pregnancy).

I’m booked in for surgical management on Monday but have been advised to stop all my progesterone medication. I’m 100% sure the meds are the only thing that’s stopping me from miscarrying naturally; I was ok with the idea of ‘letting nature take it’s course’ over the weekend, but I’ve just read some accounts of miscarriages at 7 weeks and they’ve terrified me 😫.

Im now seriously considering continuing my meds over the weekend (maybe to Sunday) to make sure I get through to Monday without miscarrying. However the doctor who saw me today said my cervix is open so I dont want to increase risk of infection.

I just don’t know what to do, I’m so scared.

I’d appreciate any advice from anyone who’s been in the same situation.
