My doctor prescribed me Progesterone capsules. According to the box, it says you can take them orally, anally, or vaginally (yum, right?). She insisted I take them vaginally, so each night before bed, one is inserted. They don't dissolve fully before I'm up and moving after sleeping and tend to ooze throughout the day. Now I seem to be developing a rash down under and think it must be related to that. Have any of you taken them, or had experience with them? Any suggestions?

I used them in my last pregnancy, and I didn't get the rash, but I do remember the oozing etc. I ended up wearing a panty liner most days. But they did the job, kept my levels up and I had a healthy pregnancy.
Good Luck with it
