I thought progesterone caused TONS of pregnancy type symptoms?? I have NOTHING, not even sore boobs at all, I am so upset I feel like I am already out of the race.

LaRae,

I think it depends on how much progesterone you are taking and how your body absorbs it.

Thanks girls.... I guess 8dpo is still early but when I was pg last time I knew by now, my boobs hurt SO BAD a week before AF was due, even though I didn't get a + hpt til 12dpo I already knew, but I just don't feel it this time. I am going to wait til Tuesday to test, which will be approx 12dpo for exactly the reason you said Dani, I won't second guess the negative then.

Hey LaRae!
I just wanted to chime in to say I never really had a whole lot of symptoms from the progesterone. Maybe slight ones, but not strong at all. And every woman is different in how their bodies react to it too. I don't think you're out of the running at all, sweetie. Hang in there. And yeah...I would wait to test at 12 dpo if I were you, because at that point, you'd pretty much know for sure one way or another and not have an ambiguous answer...kwim? Just my humble opinion though. :)

LaRae for what it's worth I used those for one natural cycle and 2 IUIs. I was amazed that each of those three cycles my symptoms on that stuff were never the same! Including a cycle where they gave me no symptoms at all. So you just never know. Our bodies are weird. Just hang in there.
