Okay ladies I need your help majorly! My friend has PCOS, she is currently 6wks pregnant. She's been taking the prometrium for like a week and a half. She started having brown light bleeding last night and it stopped after a few hours. She went to ER. They did an ultrasound baby was 6weeks and had a heartbeat. They took forever to check her progesterone and give her the results. It was only an 8. They gave her suppositories also but the doc said it could cause more bleeding since the blood is there? And irritate her cervix?
My question is for this with PCOS were/have the pills been effective for you? Anyone have trouble with the suppositories? To me it seems like they would stop the bleeding and calm the cervix, that's what progesterone does, right? What other treatments/supplements do you take? How much progesterone did you take that seem to level you out?
I am on the IM shots of progesterone so my experience is with them. The ob she went to says they only use for IVF, which i said was bs cause my ob uses em and I know several other ladies that use em too. Our local docs are plain stupid. And this being the weekend she can't try to see my ob and is desperate for some advice.
Shes knows a miscarriage that is going to happen will happen. But when you have diagnosed PCOS and you don't make the hormone rightly, you think obs would be more inclined to take this seriously and treat it differently.
Thanks again ladies!
