What kind of side effects with progesterone?

I was wondering what kind of side effects did you have (if any) with progesterone gel suppositories and when those side effects happened relative to the cycle.
I married my best friend 6/24/07. Started TTC. Ectopic pregnancy found at 6 wks 5 d.(methotrexate shot on 11/21/07). 1st IUI (natural/August '09) - bfn; 2nd IUI (w/ gonal-f) - bfn 3rd IUI (w/ gonal-f) - bfn 4th IUI - cancelled due to too many follicles Laparoscopy 1/10 - endo found 5th IUI (w/ follistism) - bfn 6th IUI (w/ follistism) - bfn Taking a break b/f starting ivf June - IVF - failed December - IFV#2 - failed Trying naturally again for now

Re: What kind of side effects with progesterone?

  • Pregnancy-like symptoms--tender breasts, moodiness, that sort of thing. And if you chart, your temps artificially go up.

    They pretty much start as soon as I start supps.

  • My boobs usually start hurting after ovulation until AF arrives.  This time they just started hurting now, at 10dpo!  And I"ve been taking progesterone suppositories since 3dpo.  Weird.

  • I have taken oral progesterone supplements before.  They made me very sleepy and sometimes dizzy, my boobs were also very very sore. 
  • Ditto all of the pps. ?The biggest s/e for me though is tiredness. ?Progesterone, whether PIO or supps, make me sooo tired.
