Hi ladies! I went in for the bloodwork on day 21 (7 days after IUI). RE said my progesterone was a little low, so he prescribed 8 days of progesterone suppositories.
From anyone who has taken this, what side effects can I expect? Any tips?
For starters, try to use the cream kind not the tablet kind. My biggest complaint was the yicky, dry, cakey feeling I had due to the tablet-like suppositories. I even tested one to make sure it actually dissolved when placed in a glass of water, because I felt so yicky. :)
Otherwise, I had subtle PMS feelings while on it, but nothing too over the top.
Hi, I hope it's OK that I answer...
I didn't have too many s/e. But it is common to get constipated on progesterone.
My other advice is to wear a liner!
