Trouble TTC

Progesterone suppositories:TMI

So just started the suppositories last night.  I've never used it before.  Discharge question.  Can I use a tampon?  These crappy kotex pads, that I got with a coupon, suck.  Did anyone else use a tampon instead of panty liner?

Re: Progesterone suppositories:TMI

  • Honestly, I don't think the tampon is going to absorb the goo from the supp and therefore you are going to have it all just sitting up there...I would use a pad personally.  Progesterone supps are totally gross but honestly better out than keeping that all up in there.
    DX: Anovulation
    TX: IUI #1-4 = BFN + 1 c/p
    IUI #5: Clomid 100mg + Bravelle + Trigger + B2B IUIs + 800mg Progesterone = BFP!
    Beta #1 (14dpiui): 460 Beta #2 (16dpiui): 998 Beta #3 (23dpiui): 21,832 Beta #4 (29dpiui): 129,771

  • Ugh.  I started the this week and they are just gross.  RE said no tampons as they need your body to absorb the medicine vs wicking it away with a tampon.  It has to be pads.  
    ? TTC#1 since 2/10 ?

    DX: Me - Slight androgen PCOS Him: Mild MFI Official DX: Unexplained IF

    2/11 - 8/11 - 6 cycles Femara (5mg) + TI = BFNs

    2/12 - 5/12 - Femara(5mg) + IUI = BFNs

    6/12 and 8/12 - Femara (7.5mg) + IUI = BFN :( - considered IUI#3 and 4 by RE

    9/12 and 12/12 - Femara (7.5mg for 3 days) + Ovidrel + IUI = BFN

    After 8 unsuccessful IUIs and no explanation for IF, moving on to IVF Feb. 2013.


    S/PAIFW appreciated
  • Yep, no tampons whatsoever.

    Plus, it's not safe to wear a tampon when you do not have your period. The risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome goes way up.

  • They are horrible. They leak at night and make a mess, but tampons are a no no!! Your body needs to asorb that so just stick with pads.
  • I start mine on Monday.  My RE said no tampons....just passing that info along.

  • Grossness confirmed as well.  Pantyliners worked some days, but an upgrade to a pad might be necessary.

    I'm not phased by the dildo cam, or having strangers up in my vagina, but I can not take these. UGH UGH. And, I feel like I reek. ALL. THE. TIME.

    2/12: 100 mg Clomid + Bravelle last minute+ back to back IUI. BFN

    3/12 150mg Clomid + B2B IUI =BFP!! TWINS!

  •  Yaah, this is gross.  Thanks for your help.  The supps Rx came with NO information and searching the internet was totally fruitless.  I knew I could count on the bumpies :)
