    @Missmimi yes I would do 2x1x2 or you could even do 2x2x2 just to make sure it gets high enough quicker, unfortunately you either have to do origami in the toilet and get them up or you can use an applicator to insert them, one like a cannesten (sp) although I’m not sure they would fit the 200mg, the did fit the 100mg ones, if all else fails you can insert them up your bum, then there is no need to rest or you could do half and half.

    I think you need to get your progesterone up ASAP.
    Are you in Greece? You can get progesterone injections for your stomach there called Prolutex.
    I would be doing at least 4, if not 6 x 200mg Utrogestan.
    There’s no special way to insert in my mind other than push them up / in as far as possible and lie down for 30 mins after.

    Does anyone have any experience with the clinic called Iakentro in Athens?

    Would anyone be able to give me some advice as to what to expect there and if there is anything I should know prior to getting to Athens?

    I'm so thankful I found this thread
    Hi @mehere and welcome. I am in a similar situation to you, also single and doing donor embryos at Iakentro. I am currently in Greece now and have my first appointment at the clinic tomorrow. So far I have been very happy with them, going through Ruth so will let you know when I have further feedback. I have been staying in Athens in an Airbnb apartment in Monastiraki which has been great. Good luck on your journey.

    Yeah re utrogestan i just insert them like a tampon but push thrm up as far as my middle finger can go. And if it seems to fall out or leak soon after, i put another one in.

    I found since I started inserting 2 that I was getting more falling out. With the single one it tended to stay put.

    It might seem that way but if you rest for 20 min everything is absorbed by then, so the fall out is just the stuff that they put the progesterone in, you will notice more because your using 2.

    Yep I’d be doing 1000mg - every orifice - swallow, back door and front!

    Hi ladies

    I've been following along but don't think I've actually posted on this thread before.

    There are some amazing women on this thread and I've learnt a lot from you!

    I had planned to go to Spain or Greece for a donor cycle but ultimately decided to go to Cyprus, so haven't really been active on any threads.

    We transferred a grade A embryo last Monday afternoon Cyprus time and on Wednesday I got a bfp I had a blood test on Thursday morning and just got the results this afternoon - HCG 46... My GP said this is low and I'm worried as I've had 3 chemicals and a missed miscarriage at 6 weeks previously. I also feel like today my symptoms (sore breasts and cramps) are disappearing. I am trying very hard not to panic but am terrified of losing another pregnancy.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Thank you!
