Prometrium Use in ChildrenPrometrium is not approved for use in children for any use.
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Prometrium for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. This is called an "off-label" use. Using the drug to supplement progesterone during pregnancy is a common off-label use of Prometrium (see Prometrium During Pregnancy for more information). It is also used in an off-label fashion as part of infertility treatments.
Sometimes hormones (including progesterone) are used to promote youthfulness. This is not generally accepted as a legitimate off-label Prometrium use.
