Prometrium ?'s: The reason for the use of Prometrium is to facilitate shedding of the endometrial lining to induce elimination of the "thick lining". The usual instructions involve using 200 mg of Prometrium x2 for five days, then stop, with resultant withdrawal bleeding. At 53, you are nearing "true menopause". Ask for another pelvic ultrasound to evaluate current thickness of the uterine lining.
