    @Tahli I am on Oripro, and when my progesterone was very low, I was on Crinone as well as Oripro. I'm sure they are just another form of progesterone.
    Both the crinone & Oripro are only covered on PBS of its a fresh transfer, and only until pregnancy is confirmed. Not covered by PBS for frozen transfer. Pretty sure this is correct.
    And as for the patches, I stayed on them until around 12/14 weeks pregnant.

    @Tahli I'm on two per week and yes I have to continue with progynova and patches up until bt. If I get a bfp then I think they continue for 12 weeks along with the prednisolone and clexane. Hope that helps.

    @Petal40 @Caesardust Brilliant info, ta heaps. So no PBS for me then. I just rang Gwenyth and she's going to ask Dr M tomorrow for clarification re using it with Gestone. She seemed to indicate there is no difference b/w Oripro and Crinone. So I'll wait for her but at this stage it's looking like Gestone injections and 2 x Crinone.
    My goodness am I going to turn into one hell of a biatch! Progesterone and I are not friends!!
    So I'll continue on the Estraderm patches til my pregnancy blood test and I get instructed otherwise? Does that sound right?
    @Charlie74 I really look forward to hearing your feedback on Saturday. And super good luck for your 500mls Intralipids. You cant say you've not tried everything.
    I too have a stonking headache and wonder if AF is going to turn up a week early which has never ever happened before, but my 'hit by a truck' virus has thrown everything out of whack, which would mean I need these meds in my house asap.
    Sometimes it's tricky trying to co-ordinate scripts coming from three different FS's!!!

    I've had multiple nurses at the day hospital tell me Crinone and Oripro are the same/interchangeable - and now that I think about it, FS#1 used to give me a choice, so that also suggests they are the same.

    @Gagingi Thanks heaps. So I'm guessing it's now just confirming that 2 x 90mg Crinone pessaries is close enough to 1 x 200mg Oripro pessary.
    Volume wise I wonder which option takes up more space up there, as to how likely it is to come back out!!

    @Tahli I take 200 Oripro or 1 X 90mg Crinone - so my understanding is they are the same dose. I tried to compare the medication info about them a couple of weeks ago, but didn't find it an easy comparison in terms of amount of active/other ingredients etc.

    I find Oripro much more comfortable to use and that is what Wazza has me on following EPU until ET - I'm guessing it is gentler following the EPU procedure and also leaves less buildup they have to get through at ET? After ET he then has me on AM/lunch Crinone and evening Oripro. You need to lie down for 30 minutes after Oripro (one nurse said you can use a tampon if you have to get up, but I'd wonder if that would absorb some of it?), so in that way Oripro is less convenient. I don't find I need to clean out Oripro, but find I do need to clean out Crinone every few days. At ET and when (TMI warning) I clean out Crinone I notice a sort of casing (from Oripro), but it is minute and non-irritating, nothing compared to Crinone guck. I find Crinone buildup can get a bit uncomfortable. I suspect if you were only on Oripro you wouldn't have to do clean outs, but you do need to wear liners as you can get a slightly oily residue.

    Maybe you can get Oripro when you are in CT?

    I find the oripro harder to use as it's very soft and has been known to get broken before reaching its final destination. TMI?

    You just need to wear a liner with Oripro, and lay down for 20 minutes after putting it in. A little oily residue, but no build up like crinone. I think 1 is equal to the other in terms of progesterone, just delivered in a slightly different form. I actually prefer the Oripro - no build up is great, and to be honest, I like the excuse it gives me to put my feet up for 20 ☺️
    I don't have any trouble with them breaking, just have to keep an eye on them if the weather gets hot, and put them in the fridge.
