Any success with prometrium for recurrent miscarriage?


Hi ladies,

I've had 4 losses in the past year. My fertility specialist thinks that at least 2 of them (possibly 3) might have been chromosomal (one was a blighted ovum, the other was a late chemical), but I did have one baby who made it to 7 1/2 weeks that had a normal genetic karyotype. My last pregnancy was another early loss (5w sac miscarried around 7w) and I was taking Crinone.

After ALL of my recurrent loss workup tests came back normal (i've had the gammit), my fertility specialist is putting me on prometrium (progesterone) 200mg 2x/day, and says I can continue taking baby aspirin (my GP said it can't hurt).

I was hoping for a more "strong" intervention (like Lovenox or prednisone), but the doctor says there is no evidence that either of them would help, and that the risks outweight the potential benefits at this point. So I'm willing to try just the prometrium + baby aspriin.

Has anyone with recurrent loss had success with this method? Would love to hear some stories, either encouraging or not!

Thanks!

Hi, sorry for you losses

I have just recently had my second loss. My first was at 12 weeks and this recent loss at 16 weeks. I also have a son who I had before any of my losses.

My first angel was tested for chromosomal issues but none were found. This time I'll have the baby, the placenta and I have had bloods done for testing also. I have my first appointment the RMC on the 6th December so hopefully I'll get some type of treatment plan. I also want something stronger than aspirin although I haven't tried aspirin since a couple of basic tests I had after my first m/c came back normal.
