M/c about 2 months ago due to low pregesterone levels. Dr gave me prometrium 200mg twice a day, suppose to start taking them 'VAGINALLY' next week. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to make this process go by easier. The only thing my dr suggested was to use a tampon applicator to insert the pill and to wear a pad b/c its messy. Also
what times (morning and before bed??) did you find worked best? I work 8 hours a day. Any feedback is appreciated!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I found it best to take them at night as they leak so its best to stay lying down for 20 mins or so afterwards.

Thanks Justine! I'm finally starting to feel like myself again. I hope the prometium does the trick!! It seems like a hassle but its more than worth it if it helps me stay pregnant! Did you have any side effects from the Prometrium, I hear it can make you tired?????

I don't remember any side effects. The first trimester in pregnancy makes you very tired anyway - I just took it for 2 weeks but was tired all first trimester. I do have a baby girl though! Its definately worth it if it keeps you pregnant.

Are you taking the pill form vaginally? I take prometrium but orally before bed. I haven't heard of taking it vaginally.

I just looked around the internet and see that some women have done it that way. I hope it works for you. Babydust!

Kathy ---yes, I will being taking Prometrium (FDA approved to use orally)
VAGINALLY b/c my doctor said you get all the benefits w/o the nasty side effects usually caused by taken it orally. I know this is very confusing. I was orinally prescribed Prochieve vaginal gel but since my insurance wouldn't cover it (300.00 for a months supply) I started reasearch via internet on all the different types of progesterone. The only progesterone my insureance covers is Prometrium. I explained everything to my doctor and she agreed to try me on the Prometrium VAGINALLY. So I will start the Prometrium 2 days after I ovulate (any day now). Sounds weird I know! LOL! But I will do whatever it takes to have a baby! Thanks for the babydust! I wish the best for you too!
