I'm not sure dear. I've only used progesterone suppositories and the pills but never the gel. What I would suggest if your worried about it call the doctor and see what they say. Maybe that's the right dosage for you or maybe they will want to increase it. :)

My insurance doesn't cover them either but the pills were the cheapest so that's what I went with. :hug: I'm sorry! I hope the doctor can get them to cover it.

My insurance did not cover it at all. I was on the suppositories though at a high dose. I took 200mg once a day.

I paid $100 for 2 months worth.

Sorry I am no help with this. I just wanted to say that I hope your doctor gives you enough until you don't need anymore, $600 is ridiculous.

I took the pills as well. Mine was 200mg twice a day but I believe that is because my progesterone was so low. The pills cost me $100 a month. If you are at all concerned by the dose I would just ask your doc.

I did the suppositories so I can't help with the dosing, but I'm so glad your doctor is working with you so you can get it cheaper. I can't believe how expensive it is!

Luckily I don't have to take it this pregnancy but with both Lilly and Jax I took 100 mg twice daily (orally).
