Precious40 - don't give up hope yet. If it were me I'd keep taking the pessaries. Pity you can't sleep til blood test Sat. We all know what this situation and waiting is like. I don't have any tips, it's s***.
Precious, I agree with the others, keep taking your meds. could it be 'breakthrough bleeding' like others have had. for you. hope you get some rest tonight. maybe take the day off tomorrow if you're feeling stressed?
Charlie74, obviously we are all different, but Wazza puts me on both. 1 x Oripro (200mg) on night of EPU, then 3 by Oripro for 4 days (approx every 8 hours), and then from day of ET 2 x Crinone (90mg; AM and lunch) plus 1 x Oripro at bedtime - on day of ET I do first Crinone after ET. You have to lie down for 30 minutes after Oripro and make sure you use the applicators to get it close to the cervix (nurse suggested that if you have to get up, use a tampon for the Oripro to keep pessary near cervix). TMI, but if I need to clean out Crinone I do that in my evening shower and I find the Oripro soothing. Overall I find the Oripro causes less irritation and build up, but you get oily residue, so need liner.
Good luck with whatever you decide.
Precious40. If you want to eat and sleep then I'd just do that as much as possible until Saturday. I find protein drinks helpful if I cannot be bothered eating. I'd also keep up your meds until you know. I cannot imagine what you and DH are going through, but am thinking of you and sending prayers your way.
I read somewhere that there is no such thing as "too much" progesterone so you could ask if you could take more just in case? I'm on a lot - 200mg 4 times a day vaginally and 2x200mg orally at night - so you could certainly increase if your doctor was ok with it. Maybe the smaller doses more regularly might be an option too, not sure if that helps absorption?
