Has anyone out there struggled with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> like these from vaginal prometrium?

Avatar_n_tn Thanks. I had a miscarriage back in November. I called my dr & she said this should help me keep the pregnancy. Did you have any side effects. I'm having cramping, but not bad like A/F cramps.
Avatar_n_tn If you are pregnant you should not take this drug, or if you are allergic to peanuts. I would definately do some research on the drug because it has alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> or talk to you pharmacist or Dr. I personally dont know anyone who has taken this drug and gotten pregnant. Hopefully some ladies on here have and can answer your question fully. Sorry I couldnt be of much help!
Avatar_n_tn other methods, they by law have to tell you that, have you agree in writting and keep a reord of ALL <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> no matter how minor! There is also a law that no one is allowed to do stadies on meds on pregnant woman and children! But they get around it by testing drugs for other things or using drugs in a differnent manner to see if they can get the same results or better ones. Think about it!
Avatar_n_tn I'm told the Prog can be a little irritating to the vaginal walls and cervix and that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> these area are more suseptible (sp?) to bleeding anyway due to the increased blood flow in your body. Any info would be helpful.
Avatar_f_tn (I was also on Femara, Gonal F and Ovidrel) I've read a few things about it and I have seen that it's contraindicated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>, so I wondered about that, but Ive heard other pregnant women on it as well so hoping it's ok. I decided to keep taking it and will ask the nurses at the fertility clinic. Unless others here have more information???
Avatar_n_tn i've read that vaginal suppositories is the most effective, then injectables and oral is the least. There is also supposed to be less <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. Best of luck to you.
297280_tn?1226710005 Just curious if anyone has had any weird <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> from taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prometrium</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> pregnancy. My fam dr put me on it as a precaution due to a previous m/c, until I can get in to see the OB she's referring me to. In my m/c my progesterone levels dropped but they weren't sure if that was caused by the m/c or if they were dropping because I was going to m/c. Anyway, due to my history, the fam dr has me taking a suppository once nightly. I see the OB a week and a half from now.
Avatar_n_tn after 3 m/c this yr i also and taking prometrium for the 1st time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> preg. the dr did warn me of some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> but, not as severe as described here. glad for the heads up. i did not take yesterday since pharm was out. i will start taking today. found out due date is 08/17. i am scared and excited all at once.
Avatar_n_tn I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prometrium</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> my last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>, I had a MC at 12 weeks with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> before that one and they wanted to help the baby implant right i stayed on it until 14 weeks just to be safe, I did not really have any side effects that I know of i was somewhat tired, but I was pregnant and had to young children at home.
353408_tn?1224071736 I only took it for about a week when my progesterone was low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> my last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> (ended in a miscarriage), but I would get sooooo dizzy about 1/2 hour after taking the pill that I had to take it right before going to bed, so I could just go straight to sleep!!! I was taking 200 mg. I did check the bottle, and it said that dizzyness was one of the side effects. Do you take it at night? If so, I would HIGHLY reccomend taking it right before bed...
Avatar_f_tn I'm not having the most glorious time with it...some um....irritating...<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. It's to help your lining stay nice and thick to keep the baby from being m/c due to shedding of the lining. I've had 2 early m/c which is why they gave it to me. They told me I could go off it at 12 weeks.
Avatar_f_tn I was in prometrium 200mg once a day with my 3rd pregnancy..and still i m/c at 17&1/2 weeks.. and i stopped taking the prometrium at my 15&1/2weeks( i should only take them for 12 weeks, but my dr told me to continued the left pills..) still don't know the reason why,, if it's bec. i stopped taking the progesterone supplement or there is some thing else..
959647_tn?1333033826 Little by little you will decrease your use of progesterone during the ninth week of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of Progesterone What are the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of taking progesterone? Natural progesterone does not have any known side effects on a pregnancy. This includes the progesterone in Crinone gel suppositories, prometrium capsules, and the progesterone in oil for injection.
173820_tn?1224939758 So I was told to take 200 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prometrium</span> 1 time daily at night.(as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> are horrible!! for me if I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> day) If I get preg this month or next they said to take till I was 13 weeks. then I will go off. I dont know why you have to take 3x day-My doctor said once per day if fine, but your numbers may be real low, and you are preg. and I am not. That may make a difference. Be sure to eat with the pills!!! Good luck!!
Avatar_f_tn In fact it is usually NOT recommended <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> since it can lead to birth defect (at least that's what I have found out). I can't contact my doc before wednesday and I am VERY concerned about starting this right away (technically I will be 18 weeks tomorrow, Tuesday). MY QUESTION : Has anyone been prescribed Ptometrium after the first trimester? Is it dangerous for the baby? I think he prescribed it to strengthen my uterine lining and/or my cervix but will this really help?
Avatar_n_tn during my one successful pregnancy, I was prescribed progesterone suppositories which I used for just one week with no side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. I have already had 2 u/s with this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and the embryo is on the small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>, so I asked my ob if he thought taking progesterone again might be beneficial. He prescribed 100mg prometrium 4x day, orally. (2 in the morning and 2 at night.

211043_tn?1337054301 Well it was just the nurse, and she simply suggested it - but it wasn't based on anything personal or having to do with my health. It was actually at my intake appt (I'd just switched OBGYN's) and I'd just had my IUI 2 days before. I've never had any problems with blood clots, but I heard that progesterone does thicken your blood and can cause them. I'm more concerned about blood flow for the baby.
Avatar_n_tn I am currently on one month of the patch (ortho evra) and on the 12th day of my cycle after that I'm supposed to start the Crinone for two weeks (never used it before but it's supposed to have have less <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> than the oral). I also have recurrent miscarriage (5 in a row in the last year and two previous. Two were second trimester losses...both boys). I used prometrium during my 6th week of pregnancy to encourage a good lining but my baby died at 13 weeks.
Avatar_n_tn I'm really freaking out about it though..I wasn't sure if a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> test would pick up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> after these procedures..anyone know??
Avatar_n_tn Becca, yes plz go to the ER immediately if you have those symptoms, as that is not common for a UTI, but it sounds more like a kidney infection, which can be very dangerous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> prengancy. I have had recurrent UTI's throughout this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>, but I was told if I had a fever, chills, shakes, etc. to go to the ER immediately because that means it has gotten to the kidneys. If they treat it immediately, it should be fine.
Avatar_n_tn They figure it could be because the implantation occurred on the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> and that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> was the smaller <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> and couldn't stretch to accomodate the baby to term. This time implantation occurred on the left side and everything has ok to date. I did have bleeding in the first tri. with both, but it cleared up. This is not to bring you down, but to encourage that you can and will get pg. I'll be thinking of you.
Avatar_n_tn is it normal to get a negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> test 24 hours after embryo transfer?
Avatar_n_tn He wears glasses only for distance and has never required any other surgeries. He is very intelligent showing no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> from the brain bleeds. His only-on going treatments are physio and occupational therapy for low muscle tone which may/may not be linked to prematurity. When I found out I was pregnant, I consulted the doctor who performed the ablation his advice was - terminate! I'm glad I didn't.
Avatar_n_tn I found out I was pregnant less than a month after my surgery in July of 2008 and my vaginal drainage and bleeding ceased for about 2 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>during</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>...but something still didn't feel right. We found out on Halloween of 08 that we had lost the baby. I was 12 weeks pregnant but the babys' heart had stopped at 10 weeks as well as it's growth. I opted to have a procedure the very next day to remove the baby and pregnancy. I proceeded to have continued bleeding/clotting/pain...
