I am taking progesterone suppository each night. Mine are refrigerated (I started of on Crinone which was not, but it did not "suit" with me, we'll just say) so I don't know if they all are...

but, for those of you who *do* or *did* use refrigerated progesterone suppositories, have you ever traveled with it??? My mom and I have a trip scheduled in a couple of weeks to London to visit a foreign exchange student who stayed with us one year in HS. I'm really excited about it, but this was obviously all scheduled before the BFP, now I'm wondering how I will travel with it to keep it cool and to get it there without a hitch. I'm stressing out a bit about it.

I don't know if I should pack it in a freezer bag or what. With dry ice? Or those frozen plastic blocks? (Can you imagine the controversy that might cause with airport security!) Also with the time difference- is it still OK to take it right when I go to bed, or should I keep the same schedule that it would be in the US. But then wouldn't it "fall out" (sorry, TMI) if I wasn't laying down.

If anybody has any experience with this or advice, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

Mine came in boxes for each week that I used them. (So I was on them for 9 weeks and had 9 boxes of a week's suply). My pharmacist told me that it's okay to keep a week's supply out at room temp and keep the rest in the fridge until ready to use. The only reason you keep them in the fridge is to they keep their shape. I had no problem and they kept their shape, and so I kept the week's supply in my bedroom.

As for when to take them, I would try to take them at the same time as when you would take them when you were at home. That way it's consistant since you're only on vacation for a short time. Enjoy your trip!

Thanks Nicole -
My OB told me to talk to the pharmacist, because he really wasn't sure. The pharmacist said that it was OK for them to be room temperature, but any more and they would melt. I would prefer to carry them on because (1) I would have more control on the temperature that they are kept (2) I'll have to have one anyway because it is an overnight flight and mostly (3) because if my luggage was somehow lost & I was stuck in England without my doctor or progesterone - I don't know what I would do (besides panic!!!)... I just worry about getting them on the plane with all of this security/liquid & substance monitoring. They are in unlabeled little plastic white "bullets" in a zip lock with the prescription label on the zip lock. I'm sure I will stress until I am actually on the plane with them (which I hopefully will be). Maybe in a little insulated bag or something. *sigh* Thanks again.

Prescription medications are outside of that honey. It has the prescription on the outside of the package with your name on it. They CAN'T tell you not to take them on!

Have a fun trip!!

I was going to say, meds are different. They let me bring a whole bottle of liquid Benedryl on the plane for my son (there's a way for terrorists to sneak explosives in

I was also going to suggest maybe asking your Ob about Prometrium? That is what I took (vaginally) until last week (woo hoo to have a pill ree hoo ha!)
