@Chyna I feel sorry for you love, hopefully the side affects ease up?
Yeah I'm good. Didn't work today and just woke up from a 2 1/2 hr nap. I'm turning into a toddler! I had one yesterday afternoon too. Have no trouble sleeping at night as well! Gosh it's hot in brisvegas today 😕
Sorry tmi post, has any of you ladies used the compounded progesterone pessaries rather than the chemist bought ones? Not sure why I am on these this time rather than the other ones, may be due to the higher dose. They are not nice at all though and leave so much pure white residue - yukkk!!!
Yes @wishing25, I got them through Warren's rooms and they are 400mg. The difference is just the white residue I think the other ones were more clear. Just a bit yuckk to deal with, sure I will get over it lol!
@wishing25 & @Heyside tmi ahead!! yes I've used them - when using vaginally I find they get too messy even when lying down for half an hour- so back in 2013 they advised to insert then follow with tampon coated in Vaseline so discharge wouldn't come out which worked.
However this time around Warrens nurse suggested to use them rectally to avoid mess- which also worked- but I found that it also makes me need to go to the toilet- so I'm often uncomfortable trying to keep it in as to not waste the expensive pessary... Urgh fertility treatment can be so undignified!!
