So my high risk doctor told me to take my progesterone by mouth. Anyone else take it orally?? My regular doctor says to take it vaginally but the high risk guy said it's absorbed faster orally and then you don't have the drippy vagina side effect (he didn't say drippy vagina but you get the point).

I took mine orally and it worked great. when my dr checked my progesterone after taking it for 2 days it had gone from a 14 to 24 so it definitely worked.

Sorry, I took it vaginally. My RE said it absorbed better and more consistently that way (he didn't say anything about speed of absorption- not sure how that figured in for me).

I take mine orally. My doctor didn't want me taking it vaginally. He thinks orally is the best way.

It's funny how all drs are different. Mine said it worked better if you take it orally also while other drs say take it vaginally. I wonder if they really even know.

I take mine vaginally. My doctor says it's better because it gets straight to the source and doesn't have to be digested. Haha. So many doctors are so different!

I took mine orally too. Apparently research is that vag is faster absorption. My question is: is your dr older? Mine was and he preferred oral. My prog levels were nice and high so orally worked for me

Best wishes!

My dr is a younger guy. His main reason for suggesting it to be orally was the annoying side effect of doing it vaginally.
