Can progesterone suppl help me GET pregnant?

I know progesterone supplements are sometimes prescribed to help women with low prog levels stay pregnant.  I read that they usually start taking them each cycle 2-3 days after ovulation.  My question is, does it only help maintain a pregnancy that would have happened anyway?  Or does it aid with implantation??

My understanding it that it helps to keep a pregnancy. I was told to start taking them the day after my IUI. Around 6 weeks or so into a pg your body will take over the production of progestrone if one didn't produce enough. Not all RE's or OBs test to see if there is a defieciency so most on put on progestrone as a just in case response.
