Understand. And starting the prometrium too early can actually prevent implantation, so best to wait. If doc does have you supplement, the suppositories are much more effective than the oral progesterone. Progesterone has a really short half-life (how long it takes to break down in your body), so using it vaginally gives you more time to absorb it. When you take it orally, it has to process through your blood stream and you don't benefit from it as much as when you go direct.
