What Did Your Dr Do

For those of you that have taken premetrium. My doctor has taken me off at 10 weeks. He says that there is no reason to go past that point. I was just curious if others have continued taking it. I have done some reading that you don't want to take it to long, but just wondering what your dr. said or when you will be off premetrium.

My doctor recommends taking Prometrium up til week 14, that is when the placenta takes over whatever job that helps the baby develop. I guess every doctor is different in opinion.

I read that the placenta takes over at 12 weeks? hhmmm interesting everything is so wishy washy......

i have heard as early as 10 weeks the placenta kicks in, though other than that im clueless on your question.

I think mine recommended through week 12. I think...I was prescribed it w/ my last pregnancy but ended up m/c so I'm not absolutely sure but that's what I seem to recall. As DBNT said, the placenta takes over at around 9-10 weeks so after that pt you should probably be in an okay position to stop taking it. Although I don't know that there is any negative side effects to continuing it for just a couple more weeks to be safe. I guess if I were you I'd ask the doc if there was a "negative" reason it couldn't be continued for another week or two, and if his only answer is that it's "just not needed" I'd request to stay on it for another week.
