I am 22 yrs. old and three months pregnant. I have Neurofibromatosis type 1 and have two brain gliomas in the basal ganglia. My OB prescribed Prometrium 200 mg. twice a day. Hormones aggravate NF (neurofibromatosis) and I am concerned if my baby has NF (it’s genetic) that the Prometrium will make it worse.
Also I have been experiencing severe headaches and confusion and I am concerned that the brain gliomas are growing because of the Prometrium. My OB is not concerned and says he does not know much about NF but that I should take the Prometrium because my progestrone level is low.
Can you give me advice?
