Yay! I am also glad someone asked this question. I have been taking Prometrium since about 5 wks pg after I got my labs back and my prog. was 3.9! Yeah, that's right, 3.9. My hcg levels were still going up and when I started the prometrium they continued to go up. At 8 wks we saw a heartbeat on ultrasound and everything looked good. I am 12 1/2 wks now and just my first appt. w/ a homebirth MW a couple of days ago. We heard the heartbeat again, still good. She recommended I cut down my dose by half (from 200 mg 2 times/day, to 100 mg 2 times/day) for 1 wk and then stop. I told her about the stories I have read about women having m/c after stopping at 12, 13 wks when they stop the prog. Basically she said that the babies weren't viable anyway. I am just not satisfied w/ that answer. I don't know where to ask. After my m/c in Nov. I went to an OB and at the beginning of this pg that is who I called to test my levels and she Rx me the prog. I would like to get my levels checked as I am reducing/stopping but I don't have health insurance at the moment, I am trying to get on medicaid. My husband changed jobs and we have to wait 2 more months.
I am leaning towards going off the prometrium and then using the natural prog cream for a few more wks. Any thoughts?
