I had to take it with my first pregnancy five years ago. I did experience some discharge with it, so I think it's normal. Try not to worry. My son was born healthy and was full term.

Hi, I'm taking progesterone, but I've not noticed any different discharge.

I just got a call from my dr. about starting progesterone supplements since mine is low (went in for U/S , bloodwork and exam due to some bleeding)

Any advice/thoughts about it? I was one the phone with her but had/have a sick 3 year-old whining at my feet the whole time and COMPLETELY could not focus. I'm pretty freaked out.

I'm taking a 200mg Prometrium pill once a day, but I take mine just before I go to bed.

To suze2007:
Are you taking the suppository or pill? I've taken the pill before w/o any s.e. But now w/ the suppository I get a lot of discharge (tmi) and started getting headaches too, which I'm not sure is from the progesterone or just my hormones. Definetely take whatever type the dr prescribed as progesterone is needed to sustain a pregnancy. They should repeat the levels just to make sure they stay up :)

Hi there, I am taking the pill. So far it seems OK. Just fatigue but that could just be from being pregnant I suppose. I just got my first bloodwork back and I was up to 34 (from 5) so I am hoping things are going well. I have another blood draw and an ultrasound/exam on the 10th. Waiting is going to feel like forever....
