hi, I had m/c in may at 5 weeks. Now i'm expecting again and my OB proscribed me Prometrium (progestirone) 100mg till I'm 12 weeks to help "keep" the pregnancy. Does anyone else used it or on it ?

hey margo, how are you? i was on prometrium with my last pregnancy. I thought that I was pregnant right after my m/c and if I was, they would have put me back on it. They are just doing it to be cautious. Good luck and Congrats on being pregnant!!!!!

My feeling is anything that could possibly help should be done. I was on it with the last pregnancy, but my progesterone level never went above 14 and l m/c again. We are going to try progesterone suppositories this next time. I've heard they are pretty gross, but a small price to pay, I guess. Congrats and good luck.

Meg and Kara, thanks for your replies. I just did not know if i really needed to take if i only had one m/c. Usually Prometrium prescribed when you have more than 2 m/c or have infertility problem. My dr said that I have a very low chance of miscarring again. I have one child who is 3. Then we had m/c, and now I'm expecting again. Pregnancy is very nerve racking because of the previous m/c, but on top of that I have Incompetent cervix, so between 12-14 weeks i should get cerclage to prevent the uteres from opening up. Thanks for your support!
