Depending on what you are taking progesterone for, and what form of progesterone you are using, it may be safe during at least part of your pregnancy. For example, if you are using progesterone vaginally, to help maintain a pregnancy, you should use it as prescribed by your doctor, for up to the first 10 weeks of your pregnancy. But, the makers of a capsule form of progesterone, which is taken by mouth, list pregnancy as a reason to not take this form of progesterone.So tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. You can weigh the risks and benefits and figure out whether or not you should continue to take progesterone.
