Dear progesterone supplement,
Oh how I love that you are helping keep me pregnant, but I am so tired of you. I am sick of the smell. The build up. The irritation. No sex. Everything. I can't wait until January when we will end our relationship!
An annoyed momma

I'm on crinone (a vaginal gel). The gel has an odor. At first I didn't notice it. Now I do. And it doesn't go away once inserted. Dh notices it. I notice it. No matter how often I shower you can smell the medicine. It stains my undies. Panty liners were giving me a rash. It is irritating. I'm just so done with this med! I've talked to my Ob about the smell and she didn't seem concerned (I worried abou yeast or bladder issues...but it is clearly the med.). I told dh I want all new undies for Christmas.
I feel terrible, my progesterone level typically sucks. I haven't done any blood work, but regardless I'd be taking this med til second trimester. It helps me stay pregnant, I'm thankful this baby is growing. I have such a love hate relationship with the med.

Anyone else struggling in this area? I'm trying to remind myself only two to three more weeks and I am done!

Mine is oral ... So it isn't too bad as long as I take it and go to bed. It makes me super dizzy. So sorry yours is so difficult. But yeah it keeps me pregnant too!

On August 2, 2012 we lost Sarah at 17 weeks. Her pictures can be viewed at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahdarrohn
There is no known explanation for my losses.

LOL well said

I use Endometrin, which is also a suppository. It is unscented (thank goodness) but does cause plenty of build up and leaky grossness. I am always wearing a liner. It will be a great day when we can part ways... but for now, I am glad it's there to keep the babies safe

With my last baby I was using suppositories. They were a major PITA but mine didnt smell. (they were from a compounding pharmacy). Luckily you only have a few weeks to go!

Thank you Natalie (MrsStuartD) for my Beautiful Siggy!!!
