Thanks

    Hi I had my frozen embryo transfer on the 2nd
    June. I done a home pregnancy test this afternoon and it was negative, I’m devastated.
    Is it possible that it could be wrong as I was impatient and tested two days early!

    This is our 3rd round, first we miscarriaged and second it did not catch. We have put two in this time.

    Feeling so heartbroken right now with life.

    Hello ladies! After 3 embryo transfer I’m on 600mg Utrogestan per day, orally, and a 25mg shot of Prolutex in the morning. (I’m almost 42 years old, and this is our 2nd ivf attempt with my own eggs.) Sometimes I get dizzy for half and hour or so after having taken orally a 200mg pill of Utrogestan, sometimes not. But what worries me is that Prolutex gives me a rash in the chest area. I spoke to my doctor about it and he said that it can’t be from Prolutex, well, I know my body better than that, no allergies so far by any reason, and it can’t be a coincidence that the day I started Prolutext the rash appeared, in both ivf cycles. Anyone with the same reaction?
    I was aslo prescribed Salospir, but after reminding my doctor about my ulcerative colitis case he decided that it’s not necessary to take it or any other drug instead of it. I asked about flaxseed oil, he said no. Any thoughts about that?
    Good luck to everyone!!!

      Hey, I’m on 600mg utrogestan vaginally (6dp5dt of our first Donor egg/sperm cycle) and also have a rash on my chest and arm. We had our treatment in Spain and just assumed the rash was prickly heat, but it hasn’t gone away. Could be the utrogestan causing it for us both?!

    Thanks for the information. I’m doing IVF -(PGD), and the transfer of the frozen embryos is in three days- Tuesday. I was supposed to start utrogestan one day ago- Friday and I completely forgot. I started today, and I’m taking two in the morning and two at night. Do you think that’s going to ruin my chances of getting pregnant?

    I was supposed to take Utrogestan at 8am and 8pm.. i forgot the night dose and took it an hour late i.e. at 9pm. Will this impact the outcome. This is day 11 post FET

    I have a question. I am first time ivf.one egg. It was the 13th day post transfer when i saw blood when cleaning myself on the toilet. I have had brownish discarg for 2 days.each day a bit more. In the afternoon after estima i got brownish spotting again. I am very confused cause its changing from blood to brown. Do you think that my body is lacking of progesterone? I am taking pills into vagina. When i lay down its mostly brown but when i move around i het blood.or its my period and the progesterone is stopping the period to come? Is that possible? My periods or heavy? Changing every hour ussualy,my pads.today is the 14th day and i have blèed a bit but its far from what i would call my period.i jad one pad the whole day.after taking the second progesterone there was brown discarge instead of blood. And when i put in the last pill for today in the vagina my finger was clear.no blood on it like in the morning.i have my blood test tomorrow and i doubt i will get any explenaction from my hospital.i am just a number there.

    I’ll be going for ET in a week’s time. My hospital normally administers cyclogest few days before ET and continues after the transfer. My last procedure failed.Having heard so much about progesterone injections, am considering giving it a try. My question now is this: Has anyone started with cyclogest and later switched over to progesterone injection or can one do the two at the same time just to maximize success.

    Has anybody used prontogest and crinone at the same time? I had two previous transfers and used only prontogest (one injection per day). Both pregnancies ended in a miscarriage. I’ve now had another transfer and I’ve been checking my beta hcg since day 10 of the transfer and it is doubling as required. I had some cramping and some spotting about 5 days before my scheduled period (which is due on 14.10). I’m very anxious that not having enough progesterone in my body, I may start the period and the pregnancy will be expelled. I asked my doctor if I could add crinone in addition to prontogest but had no definitive answer… I was told that additional dosage of progesterone will not harm the baby. I am very keen to do everything to stop the uterus contractions so that a healthy pregnancy proceeds.

      Yes, actually I was on a triple progesterone support – gel, injection and pills.

    Hi. Thanks for the info. Due to a mix-up at my clinic, I have been using a 1/2″ needle for my PIO injections from 5 days prior to FET (suppression cycle) until the mistake was realized and corrected 3.5 days after FET. Will any of that PIO have made it to where it needs to be, or did I just blow my one and only chance at pregnancy? I am a thin and muscular person, if that helps. Thanks.
