Question About Prometrium

kellywall - May 1

I started taking 100mg of prometrium this cycle for low progestrone. I normally would start spotting around 7 or 8 dpo and have full blown a/f by 9/11 dpo and my temps would starting dropping around 8 dpo also. Any of you ladies taking it notice the prometrium keeping your temps high? I'm 9dpo with no spotting (which is a victory in itself for me) but I was surprised when my temp shot up this morning. I had a dip on cd4 and has been climbing every since. This has never happened to me before so I'm confust. I don't want to get myself excited about a possible pregnancy b/c I have no symptons at all. Was just curious . Baby to dust to all ttc and healthy pregnancies to those who are!!

Hi kelly! It sounds like the prometrium is doing it's job then! Progesterone is what raises the temps in the second part of your cycle. It sounds like you had a pretty bad luteal phase defect going on if your temps were dropping at 9 dpo (the should stay up for the most part until about 12 at the earliest...ideally not drop till 13 or 14). Being on prometrium will make your temps go up instead of down because you are now supplementing the hormone that causes elevated temps. I DO hope it is pregnancy, but it could also just be the meds--because in a normal cycle temps usually climb from about 8 dpo until the end of the cycle and then drop. My highest temps were usually around days 8-12dpo. Good luck!!!!!! :)

As usual Stef thanks so much for answering my question. I figured that was the case. Does it usually keep rising or just plateau and slowly start falling. I'm just so surprised that at 9dpo it's still climbing up...i'm soooo pumped. Even if I'm not pregnant this cycle I feel good about the progress...even though the prometrium makes me feel soooo tired and a lil sick...sooo worth it. Are you getting excited. Your due date must be fast approaching!!..take care

I wanted to know if anyone knows if I miss the first day of using the prometrium if it jeopardizes the pregnancy. I was inseminated 4 days ago & was supposed to use the prometrium v____ally morning & night but forgot the first day yesterday. I hope I didn't jeopardize this insemination! :(
