I have been seeing a fertility specialist and he has never done a progesterone level. I began seeing him after my 2nd miscarraige so he only followed me through my last pregnancy( ended in m/c in january) I placed a call to him to let him know i was pregnant and to see if he wanted to do bloodwork. well, his nurse called me back and i basically got dumped- she said to follow up with my primary OB for prenatal care and if I wanted them to they would do an early ultrasound for me. I am a little annoyed right now.So my question is this- Do most doctors routinely check progesterone levels? Is everyone on here having their prog.levels checked? When I asked my OB about it he said so few people actually have a progesterone deficiency that it isn't likly I have one. This was not reassuring after having 3 miscarraiges and being tested for everything and getting no answers. He ordered me progesterone supplememts and said to start them when pregnant b/c it will take care of it if my levels are low and are harmless is my levels are ok. I sort of feel as though he is trying to pacify me instead of addressing my concerns. I know I am crazy but he should understand why after what I have been through!! I just don't want to have another m/c.Any advice?
