Hi all! I just found out I'm preggo! YAY! My doc's office put me on 200 mg Prometrium 1 x a day at bedtime. That's a progesterone hormone right???? He said it will help "hold" the pregnancy since I have a history of miscarriage. Anyone ever used this, or know anything about it? Any success stories out there? Thanks!

Thanks SugarPie!!!! :o) I am so full of excitement! ..............anyone out there know about Prometrium? I took my first one last night, and other than some dizziness, I didn't get sick or anything.

One more question.... can Prometrium mess with a hpt? This morning, a hpt came up a LOT darker than the one Friday... and even one from yesterday. Do you think this is because my hcg is rising like it should, or could the Prometrium be doing it? It's so hard not to be skeptical about EVERYTHING after having multiple miscarriages!

hi ~m~ i am also on Prometrium, but for me, it's to start my cycles back up - I haven't had one since Nov. I did some reading up on Prometrium, and found that the main uses for it are to prevent miscarriage, for amenhorrea (absence of periods) and something to do with menopause. Mostly it is used for prevention of miscarriage. And yes, it is progesterone. Go to: www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/progesterone_pi.htm That has a lot of information about Prometrium and its indications, side effects, warnings, etc. Congrats on being pregnant! Good luck to you!
