Infertility, miscarriages and bio-identical hormones

"While many factors exist that inhibit conception, low progesterone levels is one of the most obvious."
Many patients come to us with infertility issues including the inability to conceive or maintain a pregnancy. While many factors exist that inhibit conception, low progesterone levels is one of the most obvious.
"Pro-gest-erone" is the hormone of "gestation," or pregnancy. Women frequently come to us having unsuccessfully undergone infertility treatment. When asked about their progesterone levels, they state that they were never tested. In several instances, after merely prescribing bio-identical progesterone, conception occurred only six months later.
Which hormone maintains the pregnancy and prevents miscarriage? Again, the hormone of pregnancy: progesterone. Many doctors now commonly use progesterone to prevent miscarriages.
