So after speaking with my doctor today and my progesterone dropping from 14.6 to 12.4 she is putting me on crinone gel. I'm praying this works. I really had a breakdown today when I found out my numbers. I can't lose this bean.

It'll work. don't worry. it's messy but it works. It directly goes to the uterus and can make blood tests difficult so take that into account. It's like a silent helper. It helps where it needs to but doesn't reflect in the bloodstream very well.

Crinone is easy, I didn't find it messy at all, it goes straight into the vagina with an applicator.

I was on it for 2 weeks post transfer and whilst it does cause some icky cramping, definitely worth it.

So glad you're getting it. I was on progesterone with #4 and it helped keep him.

It made me nauseous and hotflashes that I remember. I was on oral progesterone while going through the infertility stuff with #3 and #4 and they make you feel more pregnant

I am on progesterone pills. I started them 2DPO though. I don't know if there is a big difference with the side effects of the 2. I know the pills take a few days to get use to. I get dizzy after I take it sometimes to the point of feeling drunk.

I used it and the only side effect was clumpy discharge. Like tiny balls of gel. It kind of looked like dippin dots. Sorry if tmi this will give you great piece of mind. Thinking of you everyday

Thanks girlie. I don't know what I'd do without you! I'm sure if any side effect freaks me out, you'll be hearing from me.

I'm glad they put you on it!

I'm on progesterone injections twice a day, but have crinone as back up in case DH can't do the injection for some reason (I haven't used it yet).
