    Can't remember the brand exactly but they were progesterone pessaries. I had to insert them vag.inally. So not very nice but effective. I was on 2 pessaries twice a day which is a high dose I think. But I know girls who have been on more and some less. There is also another type called Crinone that is a cream in a tube type syringe thingy. Used the same way so a bit messy. Not sure what the difference is between the two drugs. Definitely worth talking to your gp about. Or if she/he doesn't seem to know much about it is there an IVF clinic you could call? Just to get a bit of advice about the progeserone support. I could pm you the ph number of my clinic if u want. I'm in Newcastle but I'm sure they wouldn't mind giving advice. It can't hurt asking anyway

    That's a great idea. I don't visit a clinic, this is a natural conception. Would they give that sort of advice over the phone?

    I'd really just like to know whether my levels are cause for concern or not.

    I just rang a fertility center & they said they can't really help me without a referral

    I can understand your stress @Snooze!! Progesterone is notoriously bad for comparing BT to BT because blood levels are influenced by so many other things going on in your body such as when u last ate and what time of day it is. It's better to compare hcg levels. Use this calculator : http://www.babymed.com/tools/hcg-calculator and be accurate with the hours between tests and it should give u a better indication of how the pregnancy is going by comparing hcg doubling rate.

    Good idea about another blood test. It can't hurt to check and if it's the same or going up it will reassure you

    My hcg is doubling nicely. It's the progesterone I'm worried about. But I realise it fluctuates so much, so I'm not going to worry too much.
    Hopefully the next blood test will give a better result.
