I was gonna say the same thing as Michelle. Plus at 6 weeks pg, I clocked in at 10.3 prog., and no, no supplementing. I know what you mean about worrying, and having to face each hurdle..... Well, to be honest, I don't. I live that vicariously through y'all, and I worry and fret and pray for you. But I have been on the side of knowing just a little too much, to where it was dangerous for my mental health. ;) I wish I didn't know how low my prog. was, because that just gave me more to worry about, when obviously, it didn't need to be a worry. Hugs, Sweetie. Hang in there. And just think, hey, you've got the supplements, so it doesn't even need to be a concern. You're on top of things as much as you can be.....

Yes, dear :) Wipe your tears...


BUTTTTTT I do totally get feeling this way. When I am on a medicated cycle and they tell me my E2 is low I cry all night. Even *knowing* it will probably sky rocket over the next couple days (and it did to the point they were talking about canceling by IUI) and knowing it was not the end of the world I was freaking out, remember that?


I talk a big game but really I am a total loser LOL

Aryn, I think anything over 10 is perfectly fine....and if I'm not mistaken, 11 IS higher than 10....:)

I dunno what kind they gave you guys so I can't speak to brands specifically but I have only ever used Crinone and it had it's own applicators. But I guess since they recommended the tampon thing, whatever they are giving you must not but I think it's a great idea!

Hi Aryn,


I agree with PPs...11 isn't so bad.

Sorry about low progesterone but if you are on suppositories then you are all set.
They are messy & be ready to constantly wear a pad.

I thought Clomid helped Prog. levels too. So much for that option....

Good luck!

Listen to Michelle - no need to worry yourself - if they were worried, you'd know... I've been doing the suppositories twice a day and just put it up there with my index finger and that does the trick. Be prepared and wear a panty liner - I try not to pee for at least an hour after I insert since when you pee, it looks like an oil slick on top of the toliet... (sorry TMI but the truth). But if it helps, then why not right?


Anyone else who uses them
