With my last pregnancy, I took Prometrium after having had 2 miscarriages. I am happy to say that I have a beautiful 19-month old daughter now, in part I believe because of the Prometrium. It was prescribed as an oral medication but my OB recommended taking it vaginally.
Since then, my last OB has retired and I am seeing someone else. She wrote a script for Prometrium again and said I could take it vaginally if I wanted, but that she didn't think it mattered which way I took it. So, I fill the prescription and I receive generic progesterone from Teva. I am nervous not doing exactly what I did before and while I realize that Prometrium IS progesterone, I know that many people have different reactions to generic meds compared to the brand name ones.
So, my questions: 1) Has anyone had any experiences (positive or negative) with a generic progesterone? Is it as effective as Prometrium and does it have any more side effects?
2) Can I also take this one vaginally? It's written as to be taken orally but so was my script for Prometrium and that was OK to take vaginally.
