The egg retrieval process during IVF typically removes the cells that would normally create progesterone after ovulation. The progesterone supplements are needed to thicken the uterine lining and prepare the body to support the embryo, so the embryo will successfully implant and grow.
Progesterone Suppositories Suppositories
I had 4 miscarriages at various stages in the first trimester over the course of 3 years. One of the best fertility clinics in the U.S. couldn't find a cause. With my 5th & 6th pregnancies, I used the progesterone suppositories as prescribed by my fertility doctor from about 4-1/2 weeks thru 12 weeks and had two healthy full-term pregnancies with healthy babies. This was over 5 years ago. My current physician says progesterone use doesn't make a difference in the viability of a pregnancy but would put me back on it if I were to get pregnant again for peace of mind. The suppositories cause a lot of discharge so a panty liner may be necessary when using this product. I had no other side effects besides that.
Messy but have helped me stay pregnant.
Not a big deal to use these and it's definitely worth it. I think it's the only reason I'm still pregnant. So thankful.
Have to keep these in the fridge and use them at night but they work. Also gets a little runny so it's a good idea to wear liners!
I am sure once I get pregnant I will appreciate the med, however while ttc I was advised to take vaginal suppositories daily and it causes pregnancy symptoms. sore breasts, aches from my ovaries, bloating, exhaustion, and insomnia.
These cause pregnancy symptoms, have made my breaststroke extremely painful & cause a lot of discharge, however, if they help with implantation & pregnancy it is definitely worth it!

I gave this a three stars since I just received the shot two days ago but I will say I haven't had any of the side effects. I'm going to wait and do a pregnancy test in two weeks, that's when the HCG is out of my system and right before my period.

Okay. So definitely emotional. And my ovaries felt HUGE! But it felt like it was working, so no complaints.
