For those on progesterone, or for those who know a lot about it, is there a difference in side effects, risks, etc. when comparing the oral vs. suppository supplements? I am currently prescribed the oral (Aygestin) to take on CD 16-25. And no, I STILL haven't started it yet because last month I was on vaca, and this month DH was gone, so I thought what's the point? I guess I'll start next cycle...but some of you who know me know that I hate taking new things because I obsess over side effects and risks. I mean, the dumb info included in the meds say do not take while pregnant or breastfeeding, and then there's all the risks associated with the meds (blood clots, stroke, etc.) Oh, and the kicker of it all is that it can be used as BIRTH CONTROL by preventing O!! I guess since I take it later in the cycle, that makes a difference??? I don't technically have low progesterone, just the lower end of normal (11.4 at 7 dpo), and with the days of brown spotting I get before AF arrives, my doc suggested I give it a try. I have voiced my concerns about this before, so sorry if some of you have heard this, but I am nervous to take it. I still have a couple of weeks until I should start it. In the mean time, I have my yearly pap scheduled, but looks like AF will force me to reschedule. I plan to ask all of these things whenever I go in. However, any insight from you would be great!
