    Default Shelf life of progesterone??

    Hi! Just wondering if anyone knows how long progesterone is good for? I got a prescription for it to bring on af. I filled the prescription and that night, before I started taking it I started spotting. So I held off taking it and it seems that af did in fact start on her own. Go figure! Only took her 80 days! Anyhow, I'm starting birth control pills and will be on them for six weeks and am pretty sure I'll get af after that..... and I'm due to start clomid after that! So just wondering if I hold onto it (in case of future need) how long it's good for?? Thanx.

    Yes, the bottle says Progesterone (prometrium).

    Its the same thing, but I don't know how long the shelf life is.
    My suggestions is to call a pharmacy and ask

    I did a little research and found this site: http://emc.medicines.org.uk/ It doesn't have prometrium in their list of meds, but it does have different prog suppliments. One of the pills that I looked at (Cyclogest - which sounds similar, but I could be wrong) has a shelf life of 3 years.

    Wow!! I looked up Clomid - 5 years. I'm gonna buy some on-line and keep it since it's got a 5 year shelf life!!

    I'd say call the pharmacist you got it from... They'll be able to give you the best answer as they'll know when it was prescribed to you...

    Hi Ladies! FYI- I just called the pharmacy where I got my progesterone and she said mine expires in May '08. She said that it has about a two year shelf life.
