Progesterone side effects?
After my positive pregnancy test my doctor put me on 100mg suppositories twice a day, but it has been 5 days and I am having backaches and some mild cramping, is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? I am worried because I have had 2 m/c's before without progestrone.
I am trying to see the doctor in a couple of days instead of a week from now to make sure.

Very normal.  Google "progesterone side effects" and you will find all kinds of cramping and headaches and stuff.

also keep in mind your uterus has to stretch something like 100 times it's normal size for a pregnancy. I used progesterone and head a healty son after 2 miscarriages. Best of luck.

I had to add, that my doctor's nurse told me that "backache" and "cramping" are not related to progesterone at all, so it maybe an impending MC!!!!  Who says that???
Pray for me please.

:P
