My good friend K is having a quandary, and she is asking for your expertise!
She is trying to get post-ovulation bleeding under control. She has had her normal 7dpo progesterone checked, and it was 20 something. She has tried taking prometrium orally (prescribed by her obgyn), but it did not fix the bleeding at all. Recently she went to her RE, and her RE suggested that she try Endometrim during the LP. K goes to order the prescription and it was $360 A MONTH!!!
She called her RE and asked for prometrium suppositories instead, and her RE said that she does not prescribe those, as prometrium was formaulated to take orally (which I have never heard, but of course I do not know everything...but my RE is in love with prometrium suppositories!), while Endometrim was specifically made to be a suppository.
I wondered if the RE wouldn't mind paying K's $360 a month bill ;-) Haha.
ANYWAY, if you have taken Endometrim or Prometrium, please weigh in. Do you know why your RE prescribed either? Have you read that one is better than the other? Have you been on each of them at one time or another and have opinions about one or the other's effectiveness?
Thanks for giving us your experiences!!
