I’m reading Chuck Palahniuk’s “Invisible Monsters” and I’m in the part when the main character encountered Premarin and said it stands for PREgnant MARe uRINe. Well that made me stop. So I looked it up online and indeed the pills are made from pregnant mares’ urine.
I remember my mom getting Premarin patches. I think there are Premarin pills and other types and thank goodness she doesn’t ingest them. Still, I doubt my mom knows what Premarin really is! Why would anybody take mare urine?! Even if the urine came from the cleanest animal on earth I wouldn’t want it. Bloody hell, science! For a while there I thought I was the one prescribed some Premarin pills. Good thing it was mom…
I asked mom earlier if she’s aware that her Premarin is made from urine and it turns out that she is. She said she also took them in pill form. Ugh.
