Hi Brineyw...first of, CONGRATS! ! I'm currently on Cyclogest 200mg for low progesterone, which I may add is one of the causes for my previous pregnancy ending in a miscarriage. I'm currently 6weeks1day and had my first ultrasound when I was 5weeks4days. Surprise I'm having twins and saw both babies' heartbeats. I have been on Cyclogest for over a week and there is some side affects as headaches, nausea(which is x2 for me with twins) and extreme tiredness. Dr has explained that it is a massive boost of hormones to help regulate the levels and save your pregnancy. Some days I have no energy to run around after my daughter of 15months or even do my daily chores. But as soon as I get that quick burst of energy I try to finish up all my things. Sorry for going of topic, but my advice. Definitely take the progesterone meds, take things day by day. Don't stress about a miscarriage, although it's very difficult. Good luck and a healthy 9months for you***

Take the progesterone, it won't hurt and could help.
