Answer

A study by Coomarasamy et al randomly assigned 836 women with recurrent miscarriages to receive treatment with progesterone or a placebo to investigate whether the live birth rate would increase in the group that was treated with progesterone. The study did not find a significant increase as the rate of live births was 65.8% (262 of 398 women) in the progesterone group and 63.3% (271 of 428 women) in the placebo group. [24, 25]
