Progesterone supplements

Is there any downside to taking a progesterone supplement during the luteal phase if there are no indications for it?

I'm told that progesterone supplements are given if one suffers from recurrent pregnancy loss, but I don't want to wait until I'm pregnant a few times to find out I suffer from recurrent pregnancy loss. Would it be OK to take a progesterone supplement, or are there negative side effects that should preclude me from taking it unless its indicated?

There is no real down side to progesterone supplementation, but it does not prevent pregncy loss, in most cases. If you have had 3 or more miscarriages, you and your husband need to be evaluated, before any treatment. I invite you to read the information I have provided on our web site, <www.texasfertility.com>.
Good luck.
