Today was my last appointment with my RE. I am supposed to stop taking my Prometrium in a few weeks. I am so nervous about stopping it. For those of you that have taken this, at what point in your pregnancy did you stop?

I took it until 10 weeks. The placenta should make its own by 8 weeks.

i took it until 11 weeks. i've heard the same thing, at 8 weeks the placenta should take over, but my ob likes to go til 11 weeks 'to be on the safe side'. who knows if it makes a difference to take it for that extra couple weeks, but i figured it couldn't hurt. it is scary going off of it, but everything will be ok

I was suppose to take mine up to 12 weeks, but I kept going till I was 15 weeks, like you I was terrified to stop taking it due to my first loss and my progesterone being so low, but everything worked out fine. I'm sure it will be the same for you
Thank you Chelsea for my wonderful siggy

I was told to stop at 10 cold turkery.... I was too nervous and "phased" them out. I started taking them once a day (instead of 2x a day) then every other day. I stopped completely at 12 weeks. I didn't have any problems at all, not even a little spotting!
