What to expect with Prometrium and a little intro...

Just had my first conversation over the phone with my doctor's nurse today and I will be starting prometrium capsules (inserted vaginally)....I will definitely do some internet research but would love to hear from some of you who have used them before...what is your understanding of what it is for and what side effects can I expect?

As for an intro, you can see my stats on my signature.

Hi Angel,

Are you taking prometrium because your progesterone levels are low? I took it vaginally up until about 14 weeks. The doctor told me it can intensify regular pg symptoms. It made me pretty crampy (normal I guess) and gave me a lot of discharge. Quite a few scares since the capsules were pink, so I'd find pink discharge on toilet paper from it not dissolving all the way some times =\. Other than that it doesn't create any real side effects of it's own, or at least none that I experienced.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You'll find tons of support here. Congrats on your surprise BFP! =D

I did it until 13 weeks. It did increase my preg symptoms and I had a little bit extra discharge but my pills were yellow so no scary color. Overall I did really well with it and didn't mind it too much. Good luck!

Hi Angel,

If your doctor is looking at possible bacterial issues, please have them check for mycoplasma and ureaplasma. It is symptomless and is linked with miscarriage as well.

I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!

I will add the myco- and ureaplasmas to my growing list of questions for the doctor!

Hi Angel :) congrats again!!!

I took prometrium until week 13 or 14 and had no side effects or anything from it. I took it during my pregnancy with Landon as well.

I also am taking prometrium. I take it vaginally 3 times a day. My body doesn't make enough, so it helps me keep a pg.

Hi and welcome. So sorry for your loss. I took prometrium but was allergic to it, so switched to another suppository. While I was on it I had a lot of discharge and lots of nausea. Hope this pregnancy is all smooth sailing for you.
