People with infertility or repeat miscarriages may have low progesterone. Progesterone deficiency may be to blame because it's responsible for thickening the endometrial lining of the uterus. When thickening doesn't happen, it's difficult or impossible for an egg to implant. Egg implantation is the first step to becoming pregnant.

Infertility and miscarriages may happen for a range of reasons, including other hormonal imbalances. Low progesterone is only one of many potential reasons.
