The Putting of the Hormones in the Butt September 9, 2006

Why and how do people decide to use progesterone supplements? I don’t super trust my doctor, so while I know none of you are doctors, I would love your advice and knowledge about this.

If this insem does not work, we want to start being more aggressive, but S doesn’t want Clomid or shots. But we only have 2 more tries, so we want to maximize our chances. I have heard that progesterone can help, even when women have a normal luteal phase (S’s is 12 to 13 days).

I don’t know if we really want to spend more money getting a blood test midway through her next cycle, because by then we would only be able to use the information gleaned for our final cycle.

Is there a natural progesterone we can use? Is this harmful in any way? Do you need the blood test?

Is the only option to put the hormone in your butt?

    Emerita makes a natural prog cream. Heather used it when we got pregnant, not sure if it helped, but I like to think it did.

    I’ve heard good things about the OTC cream Danielle mentioned. My doctor only prescribed the suppositories once I had a positive beta. Take heart, though–my regular LP is about 13 days also, and the cycle we finally got pregnant was natural.
