Ok so I have had a tough 30 days!!! A miscarriage, my sister n laws bf passed away, my DH's great aunt passed away, and My DH's Uncle who we were close with just passed away this morning. Now I am TTC again and started thinking about my progesterone levels and decided to call my Dr and ask about them. I have had 5 miscarriages and only with the 1st 2 the levels were tested. The nurse said which I was told different previously that my 1st m/c the levels were slightly low???? WHAT!!! I told her I was told they were fine, she said I don't know who told u that but they were wrong I said the doctor did. The 2nd they were fine. I am totally baffled by this. I have asked my doctor about prometrium before and he said they do not prescribe it at his office because there is not enough study that it does help. Well I was going to change dr's and I called and they are not accepting any new patients till April!!!!!!! So now what to do??? I spoke to a nurse and asked her if it was ok to take the prometrium on my own, this is what she said After 5 m/c's and testing done and they can't find anything wrong, I say go for it! It's not going to hurt. She said to start using OPK's again and after I get a positive to take the 100mg suppository the 3rd day after the positive and keep taking it for no more then 12-14 days if I don't get a positive by then, then to stop. If I do get a positive to continue taking it and let the Doctor know. She said you usually take it until 12 weeks.
So my question is should I??? I found them online at a pharmacy and they are 36 bucks for 30. Has anyone ever did this??? If I start I won/t start till my next cycle since I this one is half over and I won't get the prometrium till after my cycle ends.
