    Spotting while on Progesterone?

    Hi All - I just got my first beta 167 at 12dpo yesterday (3/14). I have had continual cramping and spotting since Saturday (3/12). It started off brown in color, now it is pink - and everytime I go to the bathroom. I am doing progesterone suppositories 2x per day. I thought progesterone was supposed to keep you from spotting/bleeding during pg? Anyone else have this happen and keep the pregnancy? So worried.

    Thanks!

    Hi djkfer~
    I had the same experience. I am now 36 weeks pregnant. Call your dr but don't spend too much time worrying about (I know, easy to say). I am sure you are just fine! Congrats on your pregnancy. Enjoy it b/c it flies by!!

    I continued spotting until 6 weeks when I stopped the progestrone. Like Melbeth said, the suppositories irritate the cervix. Good Luck.

    I have the same problem. I am 8 weeks pregnant with twins and I've been spotting on and off since week five. I am supposed to continue the progesterone until week 10. The spotting makes me nervous too, but so far the pregnancy is progressing well.

    Best of luck to you.
