Pregnant after IF

Anyone go off prog supps as early as 9 weeks?

Hey ladies,

I'm on 200mg prometrium 2x day right now -- once in the morning, and once before bed. My Rx runs out on Monday if I keep at 2x day, which is right at 9 weeks. When I graduated from the RE earlier this week, I forgot to ask if I needed a refill. I'll definitely be calling to ask, but in the meantime, did anyone go off as early as 9 weeks? Does that sound too early?

Re: Anyone go off prog supps as early as 9 weeks?

  • I am pretty sure I went off them after 9 or 10 weeks. Unfortunately I can't remember which. When I quit the supps, I was so excited to be done with pantiliners. Little did I know what was in store for me a few months down the road-- I should have bought stock in pantiliners! Be sure to keep them around...

    IVF Oct '11 brought us the little man of our dreams on July 29, 2012!

  • I went off around 8.5wks.  It is becoming more and more common for ladies to come off of progesterone sooner than the 'standard' 10-12wk window.  My clinic actually has changed to take women off as soon as a hb is confirmed.  Of course, this isn't a one-size fits all, but this is the trend now 'emerging' and I go to a very well known clinic.

  • Im pretty sure Im stopping PIO around 8 weeks. I believe that is when the placenta takes over. I have heard of people stopping around then and earlier so I think you will be fine :)

  • Different REs say different things about when the placenta takes over hormone production - my RE felt this would happen around 8 weeks.  Others say 10 weeks.  Others say 12 weeks.  So it all depends on your RE's thought process!

    My RE told me to come off it at 8w3d.  They did a blood draw at 8w5d that showed my P4 had dropped, but not so far that it was bad/dangerous, so she told me to stay off the progesterone (I was on PIO).  I freaked out when I heard how much my levels had dropped, so I asked if I could go on Endometrin 3x a day, and they said I could do that for 1 more week if it made me feel better.  So that's what I did.  Did I need to do that?  Probably not.  Did it give me peace of mind?  Yes it did!

    My levels were monitored with bloodwork and I was taken off of all supplements at 9 1/2 weeks, so it's definitely possible.  I would call and double check though.

  • I was on Crinone and tapered down to once per day after the first ultrasound and stopped completely at 8 weeks.  I was also getting blood tests, so they knew that I was producing enough progesterone at that point.

  • Yep, I finished progesterone at 9 weeks.
