So, last night I was watching T.V. with the husband, and a commercial for the prescription drug Premarin comes on. He says, “Hey, that’s made with PREgnant MARe urINe. PRE-MAR-IN.” He heard it on the radio. So, after rolling my eyes, I tell him it’s an urban myth. How would the company keep enough prego horses in order to harvest urine. HOW DO YOU HARVEST URINE.
I just can’t think that it’s real.
I found this:

Just search “Pregnant Mare Urine” in a google search, and you get lots of relevant hits. Although, they seem real enough, I just can’t think how it’s probable. I can’t see how they’d be able to gather enough urine from horses to make thousands or millions of pills. If this is the # 3 menopausal drug, I’d think you’d need a lot of it.
