What can you tell me about prometrium and a disappearing (vanishing) twin pregnancy?


Answer by  srainne (2597)

I don't know of any connection between taking prometrium and the vanishing twin pregnancy. Prometrium is a medication used for fertility treatment and for postmenopausal women. The vanishing twin pregnancy happens often with IVF. When pregnant with multiples, one of the babies will actually stop growing and will be "reabsorbed"; sometimes, the sac will remain.

Vanishing twins is very common, possibly 1 in 8 pregnancies. This is when one twin spontaneously aborts, resulting in just one healthy baby.

Prometrium is used for regulating progesterone levels during your pregnancy. The vanishing twin syndrome is when either in early pregnancy, when they are just gestation sacs, or if there are embryos in the sacs, your body will basically "absorb" the other twin, and miscarry one of the babies. Most of the time, the other twin survives, without complications.

In a certian amount of pregnancies two eggs are fertilized but only one implants correctly. The other fertilized egg will not implant and will be absorbed safely.
