Prometrium but no AF

Postby Niki36861 » Fri Sep 26, 2014 4:08 am

So my Re put me on Prometrium 400mg po on cd18-28 to jump start my next cycle to start follistim and IUI. Well my last pills was on Monday. Today is Friday and nothing. I started cramping pretty bad yesterday(which I never do), nausea last night, my nipples have been very sensitive and sore since Monday. Is this usual for Prometrium? Should I have already stRted or maybe all this cramping and such is gearing up for me to start??

This is an interesting post for me to read. I take 200mg of Prometrium the day after my IUI procedure in order to keep me from spotting. On a good month, I don't start spotting until my final dose, and the day after my final dose AF will strike. For me, Prometrium keeps AF away.

On another note, I don't get any side effects with the Prometrium. Your symptoms are sounding promising! Good luck!!!

He said take it days 18-28, then that would jump start my cycle well now is cd32 and nothing but I am cramping! I had a us on my initial visit on cd14 but just tons of tiny follicles nothing worth it. I'm taking metformin and synthroid too. Ugh the waiting is killing me!! There's no way I'm pregnant

Isn't it so mean when our bodies play tricks on us? I completely know what you're going through...

I had breast tenderness, and mega... I mean mega lower belly bloat where I actually look and feel pregnant.

I'm in no way actually pregnant though.

That's an evil trick mother nature... evil.

It is so evil!!!! I feel it coming but just won't! I think our minds play a huge role in it all !! I called the dr just to make them FYI and she said he could take two weeks to start:/ I don't think so though. I think I'm just anxious to start the follistim and IUI:)

Niki, when I was on prometrium it took me almost 2 weeks to start, after I stopped the pills. I bet AF is right around the corner.
