In brief: Please see below.
Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is a brand name for Progesterone (a female hormone), which is sometimes used to maintain a pregnancy.
This medication may be used during pregnancy only as directed by your doctor. There is conflicting information about whether progestins may cause harm to an unborn baby. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
