Progesterone therapy and Placenta Previa
Im 15 weeks pregnant, my SCH and slight tear of the placenta has healed. Now I'm spotting because I have a low laying placenta and I understand it will move up as the pregnancy progresses however my question is Im terrified to stop my progesterone suppositories that I'm taking....doesn't progesterone therapy help with the uterine lining?    Do I really need to stop taking it?

Went to the er for pain and have been diagnoised with Placenta Previa puting me on bed rest until seen by my ob midwives Monday!!! Hopefully they dont switch me to high risk or a OBGYN doctor.. :o( Baby is very healthy though so I cannot complain. Sep 06 - 3

mikahsmom Unfortunately with placenta previa you will most likely need a section as the placenta is covering the cervical opening. Sometimes (rarely) it will be to the side. This is considered a high risk pregnancy and will be on hospitalized bed rest near the end.

PurpleLush07 Thank you I really need to here the cold hard truth my mid-wife made it seem like it was normal and that it would move. I'm off bed-rest for now especially since I don't do much at work but sit and type.

I had the same story: subchorionic hematoma followed by early placenta previa.  Placenta previa moved up in a few weeks.  Progesterone has nothing to do with placenta putting pressure on your cervix.  At the time of my placenta previa I was not taking any progesterone shots.  Placenta will move up as your baby moves up.
I am so sorry this is such a stressful pregnancy, I can totally relate.

I gave birth at 40 weeks!  No bed rest was necessary.  Early placenta previa typically resolves itself.  Placenta previa in the 3rd trimester is very different and in some cases bed rest is necessary.
