Crinone Suppositories vs. Natpro?
(Port Washington, NY)
Hi Wray. I was diagnosed with PCOS 20+ years ago and had all the classic symptoms, irregular periods, acne, facial hair, etc. I never suffered from obesity though.
I thought I was infertile since I have not been on birth control my whole marriage (7+ years) and never got pregnant, but just this past March we surprisingly got pregnant and we weren't even trying. It ended up being a blighted ovum and I had a d&c. Then I ended up pregnant again this past July and it went to 10 weeks and then they couldn't find a heart beat. Everything looked great, but my progesterone levels dropped a bit so they put me on Crinone suppositories to help.
My question is... will Natpro work as effectively as the prescription Crinone? There are side effects to the fetus if used in early pregnancy and I don't like taking that risk if I end up pregnant again and need progesterone supplements. I don't think progesterone deficiency was the reason for the missed miscarriage this past time. I have a feeling it might be that I am insulin resistant and I have been put on Metformin to help with that. Does Natpro help with insulin resistance as well?
