Aside

Survey Saaaays…

LOW PROGESTERONE!!

You are now the proud owner of a bottle of progesterone supplements to be taken from now until you either get a negative beta, or until you find yourself ten weeks pregnant!Β  And as an added bonus, they can be taken either orally or vaginally–whatever grills your cheese!!

 

…Ugh.

 

In the game show of life, I am not winning.

 

What is "not this blog post", Alex?

    Think about it this way – progesterone supps made for some pretty high-larious blog posts when I was on them. At least you have ample writing material!
    (oh, and wear a panty liner if you’re going the hoo-ha route)

    I have never taken the oral but have taken crinone 8% “gel” twice….I have 2 more days until I am ten weeks pregnant and I will be able to throw the last few “inserts” away! It is not a pleasant experience….but it is keeping our baby in place…and after 3 losses I am willing to do anything! Good luck and while both have their issues the benefits are worth the side effect!!

    i heard progesterone isn’t good for your liver or kidneys (don’t remember which) – that’s one of the reasons they’re mostly prescribed for direct application – vaginally or rectally

    I just ran across our blog today and I think you are just fabulous. During IF you almost have to laugh or else you’d just cry. I think you’re hilarious and while i am at a different place in my journey now, can relate to sooo many of your posts. Hang in there!

    Good luck with the progesterone. After the supplements were added to my regimen, I learned what it was like to be truly psychotic. It did really weird things to my emotions. But, I haven’t LOST a pregnancy yet since I’ve been on it. I had failed cycles, but after I got pregnant I stayed pregnant (I had two early miscarriages prior to the supplements).

    Good luck!!

    I also suggest that if you go the vaginal route, to lie down for 15-20 minutes afterwards… it gives your body a chance to absorb most of the gunk….

    And hey, at least they’re not shots, right? I can tell you, THOSE hurt!!!

      Oh, the other good news is that they found *something* that is out of whack. AND it’s something easily remedied.

    Hey, on the bright side-at least they gave you a choice…back when I was going thru IVF-it was up the who-who for me as the only choice. Ugh. #don’tmissitatall wait-I’m not tweeting this…lol
