  • I take Prometrium. It's a form of progesterone. For me it's to help protect the lining of my uterus. Your bleeding might be from uterine fibroids. I have those as well. Does your prometrium make you drunk like? lol, I don't drink but when I take my prometrium I have to go straight to bed or it's like I'm drunk!!!!

  • I started taking prometrium to get my period, then I will be getting my blood drawn to check my hormone levels. I haven't had my period in 2 months. It makes me tired and it feels like a hang over when I wake up. I just want to figure out why I'm not getting my period. We are done having children. I am 32 years old.
