Conception & fertility problems

I'm new to this site and am entering a new phase of our ttc journey. I've had five miscarriages, after miscarriage 4 I was referred to a recurrent miscarriage clinic at a local hospital but still suffered a fifth one two weeks ago whilst under their care. My lovely GP have me a prescription for Cyclogest 400mg twice a day from three days after ovulation, as it seems progesterone is the issue.
I was just wondering if anyone has stories on how this worked for them? I'm feeling nervous that this is entering a more planned and structured ttc time and thought that having an insight to others journey may help me be about to chill out about it!

Hi purplerainbow. So sorry to hear about your losses. I have good news from my experience of progesterone. I had 2 miscarriages (both around 9 weeks). Had lots of investigations / tests & they couldn't find a problem but prescribed me progesterone (prometrium) just incase that could help as my doc says it does no harm so why not try. i was given 200mg daily (vaginal rather than oral). I had to start taking it 3 days post ovulation, got my bfp 1st cycle using it & carried on taking it then until I was 12 weeks. I am now 24 weeks with a little boy!
the initial side effects can be a little troublesome (hot flashes, headrushes, bloating, headaches, nausea) but its nothing i couldn't handle & most definitely worth it.
Good luck & please keep us posted on your ttc journey x

Thanks for your reply. So glad to hear a positive result. Congrats
I (finally) saw a consultant yesterday who was helpful and we have a plan a and b. I didn't feel too assured though as he kept saying if you miscarry again. He differed from my GPs instructions for the Cycogest in that he told me to take it "when I feel pregnant", not specifically 3 days after ov.
We're going to start ttc next cycle but I can't help feeling a bit weighed down.down by doubt about it. As you said it's all worth it so need to try and focus on that! Thanks, I'll keep you posted!

Yes def do keep us posted!
thats a bit odd of the consultant to say only start taking it when you 'feel' pregnant especially as some women don't 'feel' pregnant for a long time!. I would play it safe & stick with the 3dpo plan.... Take it 3dpo until 14dpo then test... If you get a negative test then you stop taking it otherwise you won't get your period.
