Infertility

Crinone 8% girls

Anybody using the gel instead of the shot?   I am.   And I know that 'globs' and some loss of the stuff is normal through out the day, what do you consider normal?  How long do you stay laying before getting up?

My Nurse said that if i was laying for 30 min or so after inserting   then I probably absorbed all i needed to whether i  had a big 'glob' or not.

Re: Crinone 8% girls

  • My RE actually told me to use it in the morning and move around after inserting it to help it melt and absorb faster but I know a lot of people do it at night or lay down for a while afterwards.

    I never got any "fallout" until after 2-3 days of use when it would start to accumulate. I wouldn't worry about any fallout as long as you're using it per your RE/nurse's instructions. GL!

  • You should have a good amount that comes out.  I was told to insert crinone before bed that way none would leak out and most of it would absorb..  Try that.  Either way you will have some coming out which is pretty gross.
  • it gets worse the longer you use it.  i did it before bed.

    my nurse also suggested (tmi and gross) going up there to fish it out every couple of days.

  • I start using it tonight.  The instructions say you don't need to lay down afterwards.  I would think moving around a bit would help it move around and absorb easier.

  • my nurse told me not to try take any out, pieces will come out naturally...actually, not much came out at all.  I was told to put it in in the morning and during the day if any comes down it will be absorbed by the vaginal walls.  I also looked at the manufacturer's website on it.

  • I've always been instructed not to lay down.  It has a compounding agent so it will stick.  However, much of the insert is "filler" so it's ok to have a good amount fall out (after a while). 
  • I have never used this before - first time this week.  Was told not to push it up too high - it will become clay like? Weird - not sure I want to continue with this product?  They gave me a full months free - so I thought I would try? as well as a discount for further orders?
  • My RE said I don't need to lay down at all... I tried to lay down for about 15 min anyway.  The way the gel works is it should stick immediately.  The stuff that is coming out should be the gel that has given up all or most of the drug.  That is how it is designed
