    Default Progesterone and Chemical Pregnancy

    I'm on 100mg of Endometrin 3x a day. However I got a faint BFP yesterday (11DPO) and I got another faint BFP tody. I've had one Ectopic m/c. My doctor specifically told me that AF will not come unless I get off the Endometrin. I do go in for my beta today but I have little hope that it will be doubling as it's supposed to.


    Has anyone had a chemical pregnancy on progesterone ?
    Did you get AF without stopping the progesterone?

    Thanks and I will KUP on my beta numbers!

    Because I took at home tests and the line isn't getting any darker! So I'm thinking it may be a chemical.
    I'm praying otherwise and I'm nervous as mess.
    I have Betas scheduled for today, Saturday and Monday!

    hi Ashley,GOOD LUCK for your beta,I pray that they double

    I had a chemical 3 years back....i was taking progesterone and i started spotting even with them.

    And today I got my beta and its less than five but still there is no period because of cyclogest and duphastone. I consulted doc and she asked to quit medicine for having the periods.

    SO even one body behaves differently at times......but usually they tend to stop AF.

    Pregnancy tests can vary in their "darkness" depending on what batch you get. Also, the concentration of your urine can affect the "darkness" of the test. Please do not give up hope! Get your betas done and go from there.

    To answer your initial question, you will not get your period until you stop the progesterone. It is the dropping prog levels that signal to your body to shed the lining. Please don't stop the progesterone!!!

    Good luck and KUP!!!

    Hi Ashley - not to discourage you but I'm gonig through a chemical right now. I had 3 light BFPs 3 days in a row and a positive digital but they didn't get any darker. Unfortunately, my first beta was 22 (14dpo) and my second beta was 17 (16dpo). I'm still on the progesterone per RE's orders and have not started AF. Today I am 13dp5dt or 18dpo. I was told I will not start AF until I stop the progesterone after I get the ok from my 3rd beta (which I had taken today). This was our first IVF cycle.

    Hopefully this is not how it will end up for you! I just wanted to give you some feedback from someone going through it right now. Good luck to you and here's to hoping your number doubles!!

    Ashley- Please be reassured that the darkness of the pregnancy test does not matter. With my first pregnancy, which was a m/c the pregnancy test was very dark. With this pregnancy it was light until my beta was in the 700's. It really matters on how much dye is in the test. I know that especially after m/c the waiting for beta's is horrific. I was so so anxious for all 4 of my betas. I pray that your baby is perfectly healthy and growing strong in there.
