This little pill is called Prometrium. Prometrium is a natural progesterone identical to the hormone your body makes. My gynecologist put me on this hormone to help control my endometriosis, balance my hormones, and regulate my cycle. It also helps with PMS symptoms and more! It is an amazing little pill!!!
Here are the side effects to this medication that I have been experiencing.
Increased appetite....um, hello, this one sucks when you are trying to lose weight.
Emotional...I cry at everything!
Feeling of being stoned or slightly drunk.....I am not minding this one at all...haha.
Extreme relaxation within 45 minutes of taking it.
Within an hour to an hour and a half I can not keep my eyes open!!! I literally pass out and get the BEST nights sleep ever!!!
Lots of energy in the morning....but I get real tired around 1 pm.
I only take this pill for 12 days...days 14-25 of my cycle. I take it at night because of above reasons. I am hoping that this pill will balance out my hormones and help with the endo.
So far this pill seems to be pretty good despite all the side effects.
Anyone else ever experience prometrium?
