First HCG 10/16, 12 DPO = 27

Second HCG 10/18, 14 DPO = 60 Progesterone= 15.9

YAYAY! At least they doubled! I go in for a third beta on Sunday and may ask for a 4th.

So question to anyone who has taken Prometrium.. Did you take it orally or vaginally?

My docs office said take it orally but if it makes you super sick take it vaginally. The pharmacist says people take it both ways all the time. Anyone know which way is more effective? My doc wants your progesterone about 20. So here goes nothing!

I take it vaginally. My RE recommended vaginally- said absorption is a lot more predictable taking it vaginally, since orally can have so many other factors- what you've eaten, how much stomach acid, if you have nausea, etc.

I've been taking it since 5dpo, and honestly haven't any issues. I take one in the morning and one at night. I don't get too hung up on exactly when I take them. I definitely have more discharge- but that's also something that just happens with pregnancy. And, um, the pills I have are pink colored-like, bubble gum, and I see that color on my pantiliners. It's never looked like blood/spotting- it's too strange a color! But takes some getting used to.

Other thing- sorry if TMI- if my DH and I are romantic at night, I wait until afterwards to insert the progesterone.

My progesterone levels have been over 30 this whole time- I've been thrilled about that!

Congrats on the good numbers!! I say vaginally... But if you take it that way try to do it at night and wear at least a panty liner as some could leak out and be messy.

Doing it at night when you are in bed will cause less leakage.

I only took mine orally. It did make me sick, but I took it right before I went to sleep at night and it helped. Yay for great doubling numbers!

I took it orally and my progesterone went from 14 to 24. It didn't really make me too sick. Made me very tired. Your hcg looks great!

I took my progesterone orally. I never had a problem with it except I was really tired. I took mine until I was 13 weeks pregnant.

Your numbers look great!!
