    Hi Girls,

    Lots of good news on this thread today!

    Quick question..
    Anyone used the pessaries in the back door? How far up do they need to be inserted? Surely I wouldn't use the applicator😳?!!
    I start progesterone pessaries first thing tomorrow. I'm on 3x400mg. Issue is I'm going to have to have a pessarie at midday when I'm at work. I'm not going to be able to lie down for 30min so I think the back door may be my only option. How do I do it? Help pls!

    @Muchulu1 I can't offer any advice on this one you poor thing. How long is your lunch break? Can you go and "recline" in your car?

    Congratulations @Juliannicholson great news, fingers crossed for you
    @Heyside great news about your transfer, fingers crossed for you as well

    No advice about the pessaries but you would think it would be less messy. I'm allergic to the endometrin pessaries I have been using so I collected a script for crinone today and omg I nearly fell over $340!

    @hopefull29 yup the worst, my DH was also disgusted by it, another gf who did IVF called it the cottage cheese effect (blah!!) I found cleaning out in the shower was the best. It is all for the greater good you are right.

    @hopefull29 Hahahahaha you make it sound so glamorous! I just realised I'm actually meant to lie down for 1HOUR!!! Looks like I might be taking it in the bum morning & lunch😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳! Also, I just opened the box & these ones don't come with an applicator. I think I better invest in some disposable gloves 😷. TMI!! So glad I have you lovely ladies to share this journey with xx

    I'm actually not sure if the pessaries are worse, I remember cleaning out the crinone years ago but the pessaries leak and you feel constantly like you've peed yourself

    @Muchulu1 I don't know from experience but I would think if you think about putting a tampon in (the normal hole) the equivalent for pessary in the back door.??... if it isn't up far enough you will know, as your muscles will naturally try and expel it.... hope that helps.. I am a biology teacher hehe

    @hopefull29 - I have only been using the crinone for two days now so not yet hit the gross stage yet but I am sure it will come. I don't think DH will be going there for a while either 😂, especially with my crinone coming out bright blue with the viagra added in there haha!
    @Muchulu1 - I haven't used the pessaries myself that way but have heard of others doing it but apparently it can cause some constipation. My nurse did give me another tip but again I haven’t used it myself as yet. She said to cover a tampon in vasaline and insert it after the pessary into the vg that way the pessary doesn't fall out but the tampon wont soak up all the progesterone so it will go to where it needs to be, maybe try at home first. Lots of women do swear by using the back door though so that may be simpler.

    Default IVF/FET May-June 2016

    @kmvw & @julianicholson congratulations on the BFPs!
    @mrsthomo thanks . You definitely can't choose family. I get some doozy comments from my MIL. My sister in law is 35 wks and MIL actually thought it's a great thing to say 'at least we all will have a baby now'. I wanted to punch her. I'm sure the underlying message was to settle with what I have. Six months ago I mentioned the FS and her reply was 'you don't want to do IVF, it's not natural'. We've obviously not shared anything since then, she'd somehow blame the male factor diagnosis on me, I probably haven't fed her son right
    @Heyside, he's still not sure if the cyst has anything to do with it. He wants to rule out it being endometriosis of some form, but I have nothing else wrong as such.

    AFM, I have my first acupuncturist appointment on Monday. She specialises in fertility and comes highly recommended!

    Default IVF/FET May-June 2016

    😂😂😂😂 I can't stop laughing. After my meltdown and now tears rolling down my face from laughing it's safe to say DH really thinks I've lost it.
    Good luck @Muchulu1 I hope you find a way that works for you. 😳🙊
    I feel so lucky to have this group to ask all these questions and feel like it's completely normal!
