Hey, just a quick question, how come u have to keep using crinone/progesterone once the bubba has implanted. I thought the placenta/baby produced it or told the body to make it? Like, once you are preggers, how is your ivf pregnancy any different to a natural pregnancy? How come naturally pregnant ladies dont have to have supplementary progesterone? Just wondering is all :-) coz i dont get it.
@gorgeousgeorge I have to take 2 Pesseries a day and 1 crinone plus 16 tablets a day plus a clexane injection. All of it until I am 12 weeks ? Why I'm not sure I think it's something to with the placenta takes over at 12 weeks don't quote me though. @Keeptryin13 the box is $67 i pick it up today so I will tell you how many is in it :-)
@gorgeousgeorge - The medications we take in an ivf cycle to supress our ovaries such as synarel and Cetrotide prevent our ovaries from making natural progesterone thats why we have to use progesterone support. As part of natural ovulation the progesterone will be supplied by the follicles the egg has burst from, we cant do this due to the supression. At 12 weeks the placenta will take over and then the progesterone support can be stopped.
