    Default Progesterone pessaries - when to stop

    Hi All wondering if someone can help me out

    This month I started gonal f injections and then got the pregnyl trigger shot 2 weeks ago
    After the shot the FS prescribed 400mg progesterone pessaries 2 per day
    My supply of them will run out Friday night

    Now theoretically af should be here and I got a bfn this afternoon

    Just wondering if anyone has had pessaries before and when they stopped having them

    Wondering whether I need to arrange for my FS to get them in for me to pick up Friday or not

    Main issue being that they are $60 for a week so buying them unnecessarily would be frustrating

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Have you had a blood test or was you BFN on a home test?

    My FS stops all meds once bloods confirm a BFN.

    Bfn was a hpt, I have a referral for bloods just in case - should I get bloods done tomorrow to be sure?

    What does your clinic suggest? It's normal practice for my FS to confirm with bloods. Maybe have blood test tomorrow to confirm and go from there.

    Sorry to hear about your bfn. My first bfn I was told to stay on progesterone until my BT results even though af had already started 2 days earlier.
    With my bfp I was on progesterone until 12 weeks.
    I'd get the blood test tomorrow if you can and take it from there. I'm pretty sure all FS work differently with progesterone support. Good luck!
