Taking progesterone....

Hi Ladies,

I just started my progesterone suppositories last night (I'm 4 dpo today) and it's 200 mg...to use twice a day....morning and night. I inevitably forget to use the morning one just because I wake up and my LO's wake up and...well...life happens. So.....I was wondering if it would do any harm to just use two of them at night instead. Or is it a thing where you need to keep a steady "stream" of progesterone in your body throughout the day.

I'm definitely not the one to answer this, but my guess would be the steady stream thought of the progesterone. Can you maybe set your alarm and when you temp, you then get up and put the progesterone in before heading back to bed for a little longer?

Not sure about the suppositories. I use the cream, yuk!! But cheaper with my insurance. The cream I have I only use once a day, usually at night. I would call and ask your doctor if you can get a once a day suppository.

Dani I have 100mg caps to use twice a day (every 12 hrs), I would follow those directions exactly, I am sure it is important to have them done that way! =)

Well, I don't temp in the 2 ww...except for just couple days in...to verify O. I go to bed late, typically, so I'll just use the 1st one around 11 or 12 (think it's supposed to be every 12 hours).
