brief progesterone rant — The Bump
Trouble TTC

brief progesterone rant

I'm 8dpiui and on my 7th day of 200mg oral prometrium and I feel brain dead. I mean, I'm having serious difficulty focusing and functioning at work. Which plays perfectly into hormone-induce moodiness that makes me upset and depressed that I am utterly failing to do my job today. And other annoying side effects.

F U hormones!

Unless, of course, you're pointing me toward a BFP. In that case, you may stay. I reserve the right to be pissy about side effects either way.

FX there is a purpose to all of this.

Re: brief progesterone rant

  • I too felt so weird on prometrium! I just started endometrin today (vaginally, yay/sarcasm) but I'm hoping it doesn't make me feel as funny as the prometrium did. Hopefully you get a bfp! Good luck!

  • @catlover790: Thanks! Endometrin was different. I had vaginal irritation, cramps, and migraines, but it didn't impair my ability to work.
