What week did you stop & did you wean off?


My doctor said I would stop at 12 wks.

I was on the suppositories 3x daily THROUGH 12 weeks...so I actually went until I hit 13 weeks. Since I had heard that stopping abruptly could cause spotting, I weened myself since I had pills left. The first two days I only used two then the next two days I only used one, then I quit. I didn't have any spotting.

I know it can be a slightly unnerving thing to stop, but trust that you doc wouldn't take you off of them if there was any risk of stopping. By that time in your pg, your placenta has taken over the production of progesterone and you should be just fine.

I have to tell you...it's sooooo liberating not to shove those things in there all the time! Enjoy the freedom!

With my twins, I did the progesterone shots and stopped them a little over 9 or 10 weeks.

I was told I would stop when they could get a doppler heart rate.
