Question Should I take prometrium?

Here's my delima. I received a prescription of prometrium back when I had my IUI last year. Obviously the IUI didn't work and I started AF early (10DPO).

Well a few months later I decided to take matters into my own hands and took vitex and took the rest of prometirum (only 100mg per day) after I O and I got a faint BFP. Well looking back I stopped the prometrium because I ran out and that was when AF started.

I was able to renew my prescription of prometrium so I have plenty now. My question is should I take it during my LP? I know I ovulate every month and my luteal phase is usually pretty short-about 10 days (a possible sign of low progesterone perhaps?). Would it hurt if I took a low dose of it?

I know taking any prescription med without a MD's supervision can be risky but I don't want to have to make a Dr's appointment and then pay $50 just so he can say yes. Besides, why would a Dr. prescribe it anyway if he knew I didn't need it?

What do you think?

Re: Should I take prometrium?

Yes, you can take it. Just make sure you begin in your LP, try 3 to 5 days after ovulation just to be sure.

Good Luck,
