  • How many times a day do you do suppositories?  I do them at night and it hasn't been too bad.  I also do PIO and overall it hasn't been too bad.  My shot last night has left me a little sore...

  • @Smals - Love the idea, but! I was told by RE that b/c they are so absorbent, tampons will draw out all of the active ingredients/meds before my body is able to absorb them. So I wouldn't suggest it.

    I started with Endometrin tablet - yuck yuck. Went to Crinone gel & the situation improved a lil bit (at least it's not so chunky) but the only other option is PIO, right? And I just can't find the courage to stick myself in the butt with a needle (lol, neither can DH). Just thinking of it makes me cringe. I'll totally go there if my RE tells me I need it to get my BFP, but he hasn't yet, and until then, I'm just skipping Vicky C for the cheap undies! :-D

    Maybe I'll ask to switch to the crinone on Monday. Sometimes I think that more comes out of me than actually stays in me

  • Ugh, I agree, these are the worst.  I have to do Crinone twice a day and the blue Estrace twice a day and it is so gross.  I actually called my nurse today b/c everything is so chunky (sorry, that's probably TMI) and they said that my body was still able to absorb what it needs and I basically just have to deal with it.  It makes me itch too!  And I do the PIO shots at night.  Yuck!!
