I've been using utrogestan because I had an in vitro in december and last monday and wednesday the bloodtests came back positive. Can utrogestan (progresterone treatment) cause a positive result and thus a false positive and i'm finishing my prescription on saturday...Could stopping the treatment cause a misscarriage???

Utrogestan cannot cause a false positive result.

I wouldn't stop taking it without asking a doctor. I am 5 weeks pregnant and was told to take it until week 12 ish.

I, too, was told to keep taking it til then end of my first trimester.
Don't stop it.
Progesterone is the hormone that the body makes to help support the placenta. By the end of the first trimester, the placenta is able to support itself.

Thanks shell and betty for your replies.

My prescription ended the 15 of january and on the 20th of january I had to go to the emergency room cause I strarted bleeding... So my doc put me back on utrogestan and 1 week later stopped it again...No prob....So far so good. He explained that it makes the "shrimp" sleep the whole time and that's not good either...Instead I sleep now the whole time...It's better like that!!

zelda 2005,
i am 8 weeks pregnant.It is abt 1 weeks since I stopped taking utrogestan, i'm bleeding (brown blood) bit by bit for two days now. Can see a gynae as they are off since yesterday.
I wonder if your bleeding is fresh blood or brown like mine?
How long after you took utrogestan it stopped bleeding?
Shall I take utrogestan till the end of 1st tri-mester even if am not bleeding?
Is it important to sleep early in pergnancy? I usually sleep past 1am. Does it has any effect on my baby?

Bleeding in week 5 (red blood). All went well!
I had bleeding in week 5 (red blood, but the blood stain was only big like a dollar coin). The doctor aasked me to take an a coule of Utrogest pills extra that day. Was laying still in the TV-sofa for 3 days, not lifting a finger. The baby was born 8 months later, exactly on the expected date. During all the pregnancy I had to take EXTREME precautions, since I could feel so many signs that the problems came back (still I had 2 more "incidents" with horrible pain like "labour"). My husbund had to remind me to stay very calm every single minute (no social agenda, no walks, etc). But all went well! The baby was very big and strong. My pregnancy problems were later diagnosed like "very tens stomach", "extreme readyness to start labour" and "over sensitive uteros". Good to have a name on it (even if the diagnose came after the baby was born Smile). During my pain during pregnancy I made "meditation" and I was thinking about calm moments. I can recommend this (mental training).
