prometrium?

Postby Stitch » Sat Aug 13, 2011 3:23 pm

Hi everyone,

I am currently on my 3rd IUI with clomid done 8/10. My RE started me on prometrium 2x day vaginally. I am wondering has anyone else done this and did you get BFP? also, what side effects if any did you experience???

Thank you

I took prometrium from Nov. 2010-June 2011. I started orally but was moved up to one oral and one vaginal pill per day. I will tell you that the prometrium can give you several pg symptoms so don't get too overly excited if you start feeling things. Other than that, taking it vaginally can be messy because it will leak out after it dissolves. My stupid dr. had me start taking it the day after O, which I now know was too soon. My RE said that taking it so soon could have actually prevented me from getting pregnant throughout those months. However, we now know that I have PCOS and hypothyroid disease so who really knows.

Good Luck, hopefully you will get lucky the first time!

I took it for 2 months and on the 2nd month I got pregnant. I was very tired and hated the discharge, but it was worth it for the baby. I really didn't have horrible symptoms from the prometrium though.

I've taken prometrium during all of my cycles TTC. My RE had me start the day after O and it worked out just fine for me. I was suppose to be taking it twice a day vaginally, however, it seemed to cause a lot of irritation so I took it orally with my current pregnancy until 9 weeks and it helped out.

Hi HawkeyeGirl16......

so I am 7d post IUI and today I have had the worst lower back pain...more on the right side, EXHAUSTED, and bloated. (all this just developing over the day) Could all these be related to the prometrium? I am taking it 2x/d vaginally. I am really praying for a BFP this month!

Stitch~ I took prometrium twice vaginally at 7dpo also and it gave me several pregnancy symptoms unfortunally. I was super tired, exhausted, irritable, dizzy, bloated, and had a headache for the first time i took it all the till I stopped. So, don't trust your symptoms I really was hopeful that I was pregnant too, but sadly I was not.

Yes, I took Prometrium 200mg vaginally 2x/day on my sticky BFP cycle. So it was hard to tell what symptoms were pregnancy-related and which were from the Prometrium. Nightmares, night waking, waking to use the restroom, breast soreness on and off, etc.

Unfortuantely, prometrium can give you quite a few pregnancy symptoms even if you're not pregnant that month. Honestly, my symptoms the months that I was actually pregnant weren't too much different very early on than the months that I got a BFN. It can be very frustrating, but don't give up! Good luck with everything :D
