    @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?

    Default IVF over 40 #25

    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.

    Do you use the applicator? With my thyroid we live in an 18 degree house, so maybe mine are Popsicles, like my DH and cat?

    Yes to the applicator but no to the cold houseπŸ˜„. I might try putting them in a cooler place.
