Hi Dr. Braverman,

I was prescribed progesterone vaginal suppositories (100mg two times a day) because it "can't hurt, might help."

Is taking Prometrium just as good/helpful as the vaginal suppositories that I would get from a compounding pharmacy?

Thanks,


Mickie

This all depends on the reasons for using the progesterone. However in many cases I use the prometrium.
Some patients get very drowsy from the prometrium that is the only reason I dont use it often.
