I would stop the progesterone all together until you talk to your doctor. I was on progesterone tablets when I got pg and was told to stop them at day 25 and not continue them if I was pg. to only take them from CD14 when I ovulated until CD25. When I asked my doctor he said that progesterone shouldn't be taken when pg.
I'm sure everything is fine. good luck.Mum to Mousie, Foo, Bumptious and Pudding.

I'm kind of unsure about what to do. I mean, did this cream act like progesterone or didn't it? Is it just a coincidence I got pregnant this month, the same month I used the cream? And if it's not progesterone, or doesn't act like it, then I shouldn't go buy actual progesterone cream and use it. I'm so unsure about what to do now. The Internet is alive with people screaming not to stop progesterone when you're pregnant if you were taking it during your LP, because if yr body needs it you'll miscarry if you stop. But was this progesterone or not?

It's your doctor's job to answer your questions without treating you like you are nuts. I would call and leave a message--does he have an answering service, i.e., an actual person who can relay messages to him after hours so that he can call you back? According to everything I've read (and the fertility doc I went to help me conceive my daughter), 10 days is indeed an insufficient luteal phase, and it sounds to me like supplementing was the right thing to do. I think it's a little outrageous that your doc blew off your concern about this initially, actually. I also think it's perfectly reasonable to get your progesterone levels checked asap. Many women use progesterone suppositories during the first trimester--I'm not sure how these differ in strength/content from creams, but you'd need a prescription if they were indicated for you. At any rate, if your doctor cannot respond to you swiftly and respectfully, I'd search for a new practitioner.
And yes, pregnancy (esp. early pregnancy) can be very stressful, esp. if you've been trying for a long time. Seems unfair, I know! And I think it's a delicate balance between wanting to be careful about what you put on/in your body and freaking out about every little thing. I do think a lot of those warnings on labels need to be taken with a grain of salt.
Anyway, huge congrats on your pregnancy, and I hope you get the reassurance you need soon.

Hilary, you are totally freakin right. It's their job to answer my questions. You inspired me to call.
The answering service gave me the number to L&D at the nearby county hospital. I called and told the nurse my issue and she is having the doctor on call return my call.
Thanks, all of you. I will update when I know something.
