I am taking prometrium 200mg vaginally. Was wondering if anyone else is on it here. My doctor told me that it only makes sense to be on it for the first 12 weeks and stop after as it no longer serves the purpose. Was wondering what others are doing and what recommendations they have been given by their docs? I also take baby aspirin. All this was prescribed to me after two consequent miscarriages last year.
Anyone else on Prometrium/porgesterone?
hi, i'm on intramuscular progesterone-in-oil injections and crinone suppositories (because my cycle was an IVF/FET i had to supplement with progesterone). my doc also said to stop at 12 weeks, so i'm slowly weaning off this week. i did the same thing with my last pregnancy and it was fine. after 10-12 weeks, the placenta takes over progesterone production, so your body doesn't need the supplement any longer. i know it's scary to give up the meds though...good luck.
I'm only 9w and have been on progesterone since three days after ovulation. I'm taking suppositories - 200mg 2x a day. Yuck! The doctor told me that I'm probably going to be on them until week 12 or 13. That they would start to wean me at about week 12. I am having to lay down for 45 minutes for absorption purposes and that's pretty hard when I have a 2.5 year old running around and trying to bounce all over me. COME ON WEEK 12!
My doc said to quit cold turkey at 12 weeks. I have about 5 pills left, i will finish them and then quit. However, i do agree its scarry to just stop meds that carried you through your first semester.
