Am I normal? About 15-20 mins after inserting the pessary I get the biggest tummy ache, and a pressing need to visit the loo. I then spend the next 10 minutes using all my willpower to remain laying down for the recommended half hour but oftenend up ducking to the loo at 30 mins. Obviously visiting the toilet so soon after ends up losing some of the prog. Too, and I'm worried my body won't be keeping enough.
I don't have an FS to ask, I'm only on it because me GP called all the ob's in my town and they recommended she prescribe it, so I have no one to ask. She doesn't have any experience with progesterone support. I also googled and I couldn't find any immediate onset upset tummies.
The leaflet said constipation could be a side effect. Not this.
The only thing I can think of is that this particular kind of upset is normally my early pregnancy symptom. Could the progesterone merely be the hormone that has always caused this when I thought that it was hcg, and so basically it's just my bodies way of reacting to it?
I know we are not professionals here and can't expects real answer, just looking for anecdotal evidence that my body isn't rejecting the progesterone.
