I am 11wks,5 days pregnant through FET- My RE
said to take prog supp 4 times daily through
the 12th week. My OB said that the placenta takes
over and produces progesterone before that- put just
to be safe I'm on it until 12weeks. My question is, I
was on Estrace for 7 weeks (gradually reducing dosage)
and drawing bloods every other day to monitor level.
How come it is not necessary to do this for progesterone
levels? Won't it shock the body to go cold turkey?
