I'm 10 weeks pregnant on immune system protocol. I have high levels of inflammation in uterus. Once a week during the pregnancy I have been getting feverish. It only lasts a day, but worries me that it's related to immune system issues. I'm on 20mg prednisone, 1200mg progesterone and 6mg estrogen currently but am supposed to start weaning them off this week. I have the flu symptoms again today and am worried it's too early to wean off.

Does it sound like it's related to the immune system issues, and should I continue on the protocol a little longer?

it is very hard for me to give you recommendations without seeing your immune testing and more specifically that I would have ordered. But in general I would continue my patients on prednisone until 12 weeks if there was evidence of immune reaction. I do have suspicions based on your symptoms this may be immune related. Only way to be sure for now and future pregnancies is to get an immune panel now.
