Miscarriage history, scared of losing this pregnancy too. Please help.

I had a 21 day progesterone labs done August 21st which confirmed negative for ovulation. My period in April was late. So I again had labs done to confirm negative pregnancy on Sept 5. And started Provera on September 8th 10mg X7 days. On day 8 off of Provera meds still no period. So I took a HPT and it was positive on Sep 21st. And was confirmed by b/w on Sept 22nd as positive pregnancy.

I’m very scared about this pregnancy ending in m/c due to the Provera medication. I was NOT pregnant before taking the medicines but I am scared now I will start a period and will miscarry. Am having all sorts of shooting pains and twinges in my sides which feel like ovulatory pains and kinda feel like I may start but no spotting or anything. I had a m/c in Jan 2015, so I’m very scared of losing this pregnancy too.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Don't worry Provera is progesterone that doesn't harm pregnancy, it causes withdrawal bleed. But you are pregnant, your body progesterone level is also high so withdrawal bleed won't happen. Consult your obstetrician, she will put you on progesterone supplement if needed.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
