Hello! I am about five weeks pregnant and saw my doctor today. I have had two miscarriages in the past so my doctor prescribed 100 mg of Prometrium once a day. I am a wee bit nervous however, as most of the information I am finding says DO NOT take Prometrium while pregnant. Has anyone else been on this drug? If so, please tell me how it worked out for you. I would love to know if there were any long term negative effects and if there were any adverse effects on your child. Thanks so much!

Hi, I also had two previous m/c around 8 wks. my md put me on prometirum at 5wks. im now 12 wks. he says im to stop taking the med at 14wks. very nervous about what will happen when i stop. did your md tell you how long to take this med for. I think its been helpful bc this is the farthest ive gotten but everyday still still is a nerve wracking.

I am currently 12 wks along and on Prometrium for the 2nd time. My daughter is 4 and healthy, she has no side effects from the medication. In situations like ours I think we have to put trust in our doctors although it is very difficult sometimes. I believe if my doctor had not put me on the Prometruim my daughter would not be here today. Hope this helps!

Dalexander,
Don't worry. By that point your placenta should have taken over the nourishment of the baby.

I am 8-1/2 weeks pregnant , and I have one son. I have also had 4 miscarriages. When I was 5 weeks pregnant , I landed in the hospital, due to a "pregnancy" cyst (which was described to me as what feeds the baby until the placenta takes over) rupturing. The obgyn put me on prometruim (200mg) twice a day. She said that it is just to help me along until the placenta takes over. She said that it is usually prescibed to woman who have had a history of miscarriage, it is a hormone therapy. This is not guaranteed to prevent miscarriage, however increases your odds drastically of having a normal, healthy pregnancy. Hope this helps everyone.

I am 6 weeks pregnant and my doctor put me on prometrium- it is a capsule you take a night. I had cramping the first day after and now have only had 1-2 today. was that normal for everyone or how did it affect you?

Hello there... I have had 5 miscarriages and I WAS prescribed 200 mg of Prometrium twice a day I started about 5 weeks like you and I am now 14 wks pregnant. I know what the label says and yes it was very scary for me as well but, I was willing to take a chance. I also have a friend that lost her child twice and started on the prometrium and her son is now 10 months old with no problems. So don't worry I really hope everything works out for you!

Hey everyone, just curious if anyone has any updates? I am 6 weeks along, the Dr. put me on Prometrium because of low progesterone levels...They didn't even tell me there were such serious risks. I only knew when the bottle said "do not take this if you are pregnant or could become pregnant."
