The authors examined in their study the efficacy of the natural micronized progesterone vaginal capsule in the prevention of recurrence of first trimester spontaneous abortion and in the treatment of habitual aborters suffered from luteal insufficiency. They gave natural micronized progesterone vaginal capsule up to the 12th week of gestation after an ultrasound examination that showed living, intact pregnancy to 23 pregnant women, suffered from threatened abortion in the first trimester and whose 1 or 2 preceding pregnancies ended in early spontaneous abortion. The ultrasound screening examination in the 18th week of gestation showed living, healthy pregnancy in 19 pregnant women out of 23 and the authors qualified their treatment as successful. They performed curettage on 2 patients because of incomplete abortion and on 2 patients because of missed abortion. At the same time the authors managed to help 6 out of 7 habitual aborters suffered from luteal insufficiency to become pregnant with intravaginal micronized progesterone and all pregnancies were successful with treatment until the 12th week of gestation. The results of serum triple test in the 16th week of gestation were normal in both groups. None of the patients reported local intolerance (greasy discharge, pruritus), drowsiness, dizziness or nausea during the treatment.
