Spotting after stopping progesterone - looking for advice


#1

Hello ladies, I am currently pregnant with twins - 8weeks approx and was asked to stop progesterone yesterday. I stopped and from today started spotting - is this due to lack of prog? I was worried so I went ahead and took the progesterone today Looking for advice urgently :(((( not sure wat I can do

8 weeks is too early, in my opinion. My RE has you continue until 12 weeks. Some REs stop at 10 weeks. Do you still have some that you can take?


#3

My RE recommended stopping at 10 weeks. I saw the regular OB before then and they had me continue until 12 weeks. I have read that there is a slight increase in the risk of cleft lip/palate in continuing to 12 weeks.

I stopped at 10 weeks. Have you had your levels checked? the spotting might be unrelated. You may have a sch - bleeding during pregnancy is very common with twins.

I would ask for the second opinion because I also think 8 weeks is still early. In any case, report your spotting. I hope all goes well.
