Prometrium uterine lining

Common Questions and Answers about Prometrium uterine lining


Avatar m tn I did not see this question earlier. Prometrium is a progesterone that stabilizes the lining of the uterus. If irregular bleeding is thought to be due to a lack of ovulation, then adding back progesterone with make the periods more regular. a more common approach is to just start a low dose birth control pill. I would say that it is important that you have a follow up visit to recheck that cyst and also to see what your bleeding pattern is on the prometrium.
Avatar n tn Your period is supposed to start a day or two after you stop the prometrium. The clomid may work without a period, but your uterine lining may not be optimum for a pregnancy if you do not have a period first. This could cause a m/c if you do get pg. You really need to get af first. If the prometrium doesn't work, then you need to call your Dr. to try something else. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Now as it raises the progesterone it can delay your period if you are not pregnant as during the luteal phase (after ovulation) your progesterone will decrease and estrogen levels will rise talling your body to shed the uterine lining causeing yoru period to occur. When you take suppliments the progesterone stays up and may not fall till stopped. That is why you are always to have a beta hCG blood draw on the 32-33 day of your cycle to see if pregnancy has taken place.
Avatar f tn Have been trying to complete FET but have cancelled twice due to uetrine lining being only 5.4 mm. Now trying a third time and uterine lining is only 4.2 mm. I am on the max dosage of estrogen, drinking red raspberry leaf tea, takin vitex and a baby aspirin every day, vitamin B complex, vitamin C and of course my prenatal vitamins. Started acupuncture last week and going for more treatments this week. Any advice, suggestions etc.. are welcome.
Avatar f tn I wanted to know if any of you know a medication or anything that is used to build up your lining? My gyno told me at my visit CD12 that I had sufficient lining but that is not as much as he expect5ed to see. I am on clomid CD 2-6 but my lining was light before this. If I am not prggers this month I want to know what to ask for next time I see him.
Avatar n tn However, the Prometrium might help the lining to eventually stop bleeding. Without progesterone, the lining won't shed evenly and only some of the lining will bleed and some will stay. That causes bleeding to continue off and on. The Prometrium helps to make the entire lining shed. Your experience is not abnormal but hopefully the bleeding will stop within the next week. If not, talk with your doctor again.
299260 tn?1304219705 Hi. Dh & I are in our 3rd year ttc. We both checked out okay, but so far, no luck. My only issue is that I have a t-shaped uterus & so my RE won't put me on meds that could increase the chance of multiples. It's too much of a risk. Anyway, this past cycle I had an u/s on cd12. My RE measured my uterine lining & I can't remember how thick it was, but she commented that it was thin, but that I had a few more days for it to thicken.
Avatar m tn If you or your doctor is concerned, a pelvic ultrasound can be performed (and repeated yearly if either of you feels necessary) to ensure the uterine lining is less than 9 mm thick. Unfortunately, even though Prometrium is bioidentical Progesterome, it only comes in capsules of two sizes, 100 mg or 200 mg. I have patients that can only tolerate 75 mg, or those that need 125 mg, etc., etc.
233053 tn?1321647421 I was just perscribed Prometrium for this cycle as well. Like you, I hope to have a positive result. I was prescribed Prometrium to help thicken/sustain my uterine lining as it was <7. Hope this is your month. Keep us posted.
Avatar m tn It is time to have a discussion with your doctor. If he/she has been checking your uterine lining to be sure there is no abnormal cell buildup, then the discussion is to either stop the Prometrium or add an estrogen to it. That will require a discussion about risk and benefit for you individually. At 55, it is likely that your periods will stop before too long (the range in the United States for menopause is 45 to 55 with the mean at age 51). Machelle M.
178590 tn?1294180367 I guess the prometrium is supposed to support(grow) the uterine lining which can help with implantation, and help support the embryo if you do get preggers. I am on it now. I take it am and pm intravaginally. The worst part is the mess it makes, you'll probably need to use a pantyliner every day. It was worse when I first started it on May 3rd. Now it isn't quite as bad. I haven't had many side effects other than that. I did get a BFP though and have had some smallish cramps at 4 weeks.
1110747 tn?1295847643 Right now I am CD45 and just put on Prometrium. I had blood work done and found I have no HCG levels and progesterone levels were below 10. I am really hoping for an AF visit but I was wondering has anyone used Prometrium to get pregnant? I was thinking if it is for increasing your progesterone level during pregnancy and it can also be used to help you ovulate. Can you get pregnant by being on Prometrium?
Avatar f tn The problem is that the progesterone helps the body not produce the estrogen that tells the body to shed the uterine lining. If you stop the progesterone it signals the estrogen and mc can happen. My RE said never to stop the progesterone/prometrium unless I either started AF with a full flow or if I didn't get a blood "quantataive" not qualitive blood hcg tomake sure i was not pregnant.
210951 tn?1203145344 I was told by a nurse today that the prometrium could have built up the uterine lining too much causing AF to be delayed. I didn't have any problems with it the previous cycles and now I'm just wondering if it built up the lining that fast this cycle, maybe I don't really need it?!? Has anyone had this happen before?
Avatar n tn I had an early miscarriage in May due to low progesterone. I was given Prometrium for after I ovulate. I started taking it on Saturday and then I went to the internet to research it.I see that many people on this site have benefited from it and have wonderful babies or good pregnancies. What I am worried about is the side effects. I am already a worrier and now I see that it causes it blood clots.
Avatar f tn My doctor prescribed PROMETRIUM, 2 capsules to be taken intra-vaginaly, every day from week 18 to 32. I know Prometrium is primarily prescribed to women having trouble convceiving or having repeated mc. I did have a mc before my daughter and it does take at least 8 months for us to get pg in the first place but I have NEVER heard of Prometrium being taken after the first trimester.
1169053 tn?1278119832 I would love to hear some feedback from anyone who has used esterace for thin uterine lining. And would also like to know your dose and how often you used it. My lining was only 6mm today and I started the esterace right away for IUI Monday Dose is two 2mg tablets inserted twice a day... I think. He told me to do the first dose asap and another tonight, but the directions say use as directed so I dont know if i am supposed to keep doing it twice a day or not.
Avatar n tn It helps build up the uterine lining making it a more hospitable place for your egg to attach. I have no problems with Lutheal phase or ovulation. I just have very short periods, normally 1 good day. So if I got pregnant there wasn't enough there to substain a pregnancy. My doc told me many of the progesterone supplements can cause feminine traits in a male child, but prometrium would not do this. It is more like the progesterone produced by the body.
Avatar f tn I have no negative side effects and and uterine lining looks normal on the ultrasound. Is promethium needed 10 days per month ??? Or if no problems , no need to add it. Thank you ..
Avatar n tn If so what other meds could be used to assit with the increase of uterine lining? extra question if you have time: Can high blood pressure cause a m/c? Thank you so much for your time and help.
Avatar n tn The progestagen in Activella is different from that in Prometrium. I have read that typically 100 mg Prometrium taken daily is necessary to protect the uterine lining. I have connected with many women on HRT and Prometrium seems a little trickier to dose to keep the lining thinned out and at the same time prevent spotting. And there can be some trial and error also with going from oral estrogen to transdermal.
Avatar n tn It is difficult to say what is going on without more information. There is always some estrogen in the body for a while after a depo shot of any hormone. You might need to be on the Prometrium for another round of treatment. It is possible that the amount of Prometrium needed would be a little more than 3 per week when coming off the hormones. If you have more of the Prometrium you can try taking one daily for about 7-10 days. If it stops, you will likely have another period afterwards.
Avatar n tn I might have to go on progesterone to eliminate a thickened uterine lining. This was the first progesterone product that popped into my head. Do you have any side effects with Prometerium?
296340 tn?1336167601 ***** Drugs that improve the uterine lining The following medications are prescribed to improve the quality of the uterine lining and thus improve embryo implantation. Progesterone injections have been used for years, and now newer forms such as gels and vaginal suppositories are becoming popular and easier to use. Side effects of all of these drugs can include fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, nausea and depression. Progesterone in oil. Crinone gel. Progesterone suppositories.
Avatar n tn I have taken it a few times. Honestly, I didn't have any side effects. To my knowledge it is supposed to also regulate your cycle. Are you trying to get pregnant?
Avatar f tn Either way, I would prescribe Prometrium for 10-14 days to slow down the flow of blood and stabilize the uterine lining. I would probably then watch to see if you would begin regular ovulatory cycles, which shouldn't be excessively heavy. If not, cyclic progesterone might be one option for treatment. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Pap smear and u/s noted no af in sight and thin uterine lining. 10/14: Started Estrogen to build lining in uterus. Dr said that if I did become preg, the thin lining would not support a pregnancy and I would m/c again. I BD on Tuesday night w/ no protection. I am ttc, but now I am afraid of m/c again. Questions: (I will call dr. tomorrow morning!) 1.Is 1 week on estrogen long enough to build lining to support a pregnancy? 2.
210951 tn?1203145344 I think the doc just wants to make sure everything is on board and ready to go in order to conceive. the tech said my uterine lining was a little thin, I believe she said 4mm. It looks like I'll ovulate from the right side and the follicle was only 17mm. I go back tomorrow for another ultrasound to see if the follicle is closer to 20mm as that's what they would like to see it at to do the HCG trigger shot.
556132 tn?1215546082 Definitely get your hormones checked out. The hormones are what cause your uterine lining to grow and shed. So if they're a little off, it could cause that problem. Hormonal problems could also cause your weight to be high and make it near impossible for you to lose weight.
Avatar n tn The RE said that since I was so thin already (not sure if he meant weight or uterine lining) that 100 mg should be what I'm on. Needless to say, I am SO confused! I feel like we wasted the money on the IUI since we had no idea if I had mature follicles or not. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait and see. If anyone else has more comments or suggestions, I'd really appreciate them! LOTS OF BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!
