Progesterone suppositories
« on: June 14, 2017 at 04:07 AM »
Hi mammas,

I just wanted to know how long your doctors kept you on progesterone suppositories for. I've been on them since 23 weeks, now just off 30 and did is talking of stopping them. Is there any medical reason to stop taking them after prolonged use?

Thanks ladies
:)

I'm still on them.

From what research I can find and have discussed with colleagues, there is no really striking evidence that it does or doesn't help. Depends on your OB or MFM's belief about the research.

I've just been taken off then at 32 weeks....   even when Dr prescribed at 12 wks after cerclage, he said I would only need them until 32

not sure why...  but friend being treated for similar  issues in another country was also advised the same
