Subject:  low progesterone levels affecting pregnancy
Low progesterone levels affects conception. Progesterone helps the uterus to maintain the uterine lining so that egg, after it is fertilized, is able to implant in the wall of the uterus. Progesterone allows the embryo to survive. With low levels of progesterone, the uterus may not be able to maintain the uterine lining, allowing the fertilized egg to implant. There is a greater risk of miscarriage.

Subject:  Maintaining the low progesterone levels
A woman can increase or maintain a high progesterone level by taking supplements. These supplements can be oral supplements, vaginal suppositories or injections. These must be prescribed by a doctor. Most common vaginal suppository is crinone which is a progesterone gel that is squeezed into the birth canal. It increases the progesterone in the uterus. For women with very low levels of Progesterone, or if a woman' s progesterone drops significantly, then injections are best as they directly enter the blood stream. Most common side effects of progesterone supplements are fatigue and frequent urination.

Subject:  Role of progesterone in pregnancy
Progesterone is a hormone that helps the uterus to be prepared for the fertilized ovum so as to maintain the pregnancy. It increases the lining of the uterus and helps in implantation of the embryo. Hence women with low progesterone levels will not have a thick uterine lining, leading to miscarriage. low progesterone levels is also one of the major causes of infertility in women, which makes conceiving a bit difficult.
