A recent study published recently showed how important progesterone is for women with a history of miscarriages. If you’re a patient of mine, you’ve heard me say this: Imagine running a marathon. Then imagine no one offering you water during the race. But then maybe at the very end of the race, someone checks on you and says, “How about some water? You’re not looking so good.” Can you imagine?
If you’ve ever run a marathon before, you would know that withholding water from a runner would be really unfair! Well, that’s how I think of progesterone: it’s like water to a marathon runner. Fertilization occurs in the fallopian tube. The embryo will then travel down the tube and land in the uterus where it will stick and grow. The time to support your embryo isn’t after it has completed the race but during the race itself. If you haven’t watched this video before, it’s a must-see! It’s an hour long but once you watch it, you’ll understand how important it is to do all you can to support your embryo during its race.
Everyone’s situation is different. Just because you read something in a blog doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Please talk to your personal physician about your individual case so you can get the very best care.
