I've had 3 m/c and one son.

No doc has ever found anything wrong with me!!

This month we're going to try progesterone suppositories beginning on CD 20.

Anyone else taken these? I hear they're pretty gross, but can anyone tell me what else to expect? Anyone else had any luck with them?

I'm only on CD 3, so I've got a few days ...

I took them for a couple of weeks in the summer. I ended up m/c but it wasn't due to low progesterone. I took 200mg daily (100mg in the am and 100mg in the pm), and inserted the caplet. I used a suppository dispenser to get it up behind my cervix. I also recommend wearing a panty liner because it can cause a discharge. I didn't really notice any other s/e (except for the occasional night sweats).

On the whole though...it wasn't a bad experience.
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy

I'm using them now. I don't find them gross at all. Whatever helps me get pregnant/keep a pregnancy, I'll do, you know. It's getting to the point now that I will endure any pain, discomfort or embarrassment for the sake of having just one child. GL to you. Let me know if you have any more ? about them.
