Prometrium question?

Has anyone else had to take Prometrium? I was put on it at 6 weeks after a little spotting & borderline low progesterone levels. It stopped the spotting immediately....now I am just wondering when do I stop using it? My mw said just through the first tri, and I've read only til 10-12 weeks. I was thinking first tri ended at 14 weeks but I will be 12 weeks on saturday and I am kinda of wanting to be done with this gross stuff. Anyone know?

See that's where I am....everything I read says 12, and there is part of me that worries will it be harmful to continue to 14? But then again I'm also scared to stop using it

Re: Prometrium question?

Can you get your levels checked again? And def ask your midwife... I think it sort of varies person to person.

I could, but mine were really never truly low to begin with, just borderline. I asked for the supplement because of the spotting and it did stop it immediately which was good. I guess I'll just stay on til 14 weeks which is the end of my prescription anyway. I just wanted to make sure it would not be harmful to stay on beyond 12 weeks

Re: Prometrium question?

mine were never low either, just precautionary bc of the 3 prvious losses. I would talk to the ob/mw about weaning off of it from 12-14...i told mine that and she seemed fine with it. I also had enough left from my last refill that i figured what the heck (stuff was pricey)
