My sister recently found out she was pregnant after losing her one and only child 11 or 12 years ago. She was already about 8 months along when she lost her baby the first time. Then this time after all these years of trying she gets pregnant and the doctor told her she had a low progesterone level and she would have to do a cream. They couldn't find a pharmacy that had it in then they called her after her second blood tests and told her exactly this "your progesterone level dropped and at the level it is now we will not support any further treatments (the cream which she hadn't received yet) or you going on with this pregnancy. You are going to have a miscarriage, call us when you start to bleed and we will do a d&c." I told her to do the cream anyway and the baby is fine, no thanks to DRYou cannot just tell somebody this is what's going to happen you're going to lose your baby you waited over a decade for without trying anything to save it or giving her any other options. If I being the protective caring sister I am hadn't done all this research about the progesterone levels and sustainability of a pregnancy with such levels my sister would have LOST this baby because of him, and people are suppose to trust him? count on him? he gave her NO options NO hope. It makes me sick. As a doctor your number one choice should always be to sustain life, not take it away. Thank you.
