Hi ladies, I'm looking for a bit of advice. I had my 7DPO BT today and my progesterone was 65. I thought this was really good as the fertility clinic say they are happy with 35 and above. Anyway, the clinic said my dr (who doesn't work at the clinic, just send his gyno patients there) puts people with less than 80 on progesterone pessaries. So I had to go back to the clinic this afternoon and get some to start using tonight.
I am happy to have my progesterone increase as much as possible, because when I had my chemical pregnancy (hate calling it that) my progesterone was very low with I was still get positive HCG results. Dr think my uterus lining was thick enough which caused the loss. So happy to know this will help with my lining.
I had heard of these before but knew nothing about. The nurse explained how to use them etc but was just wanting some general feedback from anyone that has used them.
I, for my own benefit, still record my BBT each morning. Should I suspect to see this raised from the increased progesterone and will it not drop until I stop taking them. I just don't want to get my hopes up if my BBT keeps rising or remaining the same rather than starting to drop.

Progesterone Pessaries - looking for some advice
05-01-2012 23:19 #2
I hated using them - that TWW could not have passed soon enough. Luckily I got my DD out of the experience - I HATED them.
I had to use them 3 times a day so I would set my alarm for half and hour before I got up, went to the toilet, put the pessary in and slept for a bit longer, or read a book. When I got home from work I would put the meat in the microwave to defrost and lie down to watch the news. The night one was the only one that didn't cause problems.
But, the worst part for me was the fact that I felt dirty and itchy when I was using them. The waxy consistency when they melt sort of coated inside my labia and sort of stuck.
I hope you have an easier time with them and they help you get your bub..

Thanks for the reply! I luckily only taking 1 per day this cycle so will be using it as I get into bed a night. The nurse warned me to wear a panty liner to bed.
I am sorry it was so horrible for you.... How many cycles did you do it for until you got pregnant with your DD?

Just the one cycle...phew. I did ovulation induction and IUI for 2 cycles and conceived both times but miscarried the first time, so the second time I was given 2 types of luteal phase support - progesterone pessaries and low dose asprin.

Oh at least it was only one cycle for you. It wasn't too bad last night. I felt like it was leaking out thou so i put a pillow under my bum for the first half an hour. My fingers are crossed that I only need them for 1 cycle too!
