My doctor just prescribed this to me today to start next cycle b/c my progestrone is too low.

I have read many side effects, extreme dizziness, nausua, moodiness, and the list goes on! (No wonder my nurse said, I hope you get pregnant right off the bat!)

I am supposed to take it twice a day starting 2 days after a Pos OPK. My problem is I never really get a blaring positive, oh well I will judge it like I normally do.

I also read it will effect my temps. Should I even bother temping while taking this?! My head hurts just thinking about it.

first month I didnt have any symptoms til 8DPO (started it at 3DPO) and it was dizziness for one day,fatigue,increased appetite,tender breasts.

I ate soooooo much I was always hungry. I may as well have been a newborn baby I'd eat 3x my normal amount then fall asleep for a couple hours.

This is my second month on it and I started with dizziness,fatigue & increased appetite the first day O_O.
The dizziness was only one day again.

My fiance says I was nicer on it then when I wasnt on it so no moodiness. It also increased my sex drive tenfold and it hasnt gone back to normal either.

I used to only want sex a couple times a week and now we're having sex like 2-3 times a day!

Hey...I've done Prometrium two times now. Neither time produced any significant side effects. I hope it's the same for you. It really wasn't bad at all though.

As far as temping goes-it definitely causes my temperature to spike-so charting may not be accurate if your basing your current charts on previous patterns of temperature.
