I was just curious who is still taking some type of supplement (i.e. PIO, Prometrium, etc.) What are you taking and for how long? My RE says I should stay on PIO or Prometrium until 10-12 weeks. I've been doing the PIO injections since my IVF retrieval. The RE said I'd likely be unable to take it much longer and I could take Prometrium vaginally 3x a day instead. I'm nervous to switch though. I thought I'd ask what you ladies are taking and for how long.

I'm nosing in from the Oct. board. I was given the option to go to vaginal progesterone at around 7 weeks but was nervous to switch too. I was also on estrogen vaginally so I didn't really want all of that up there! I did fine until about week 10ish when I really wished I didn't have to take PIO shots anymore! I stayed on them to week 12 like instructed though. I know a lot of people on the Oct. board switched to vaginal progesterone so I guess you should just do what you're most comfortable with. If the PIO doesn't seem like that big of a deal (even though it sucks) then you can just tough it out till the end.

I'm still on the PIO. I've done good with them up until 3 nights ago. Now I'm getting lumps and red blotchy skin on my @ss. Very attractive. Now the shots are getting painful when my DH is giving them. The clinic accidently gave me 1" needles last week when I had been using 1 1/2." The RE said it was fine but it's obviously not. I go back tomorrow to get the old 1 1/2" needles. I'm hoping that makes a difference. The RE nurse said today that in about 2 weeks I'll go to the suppositories. I don't know if that will be a welcome change or not. Oh, I'm also still on 2 estrogen patches that get switched twice a week.Me - 27 DH - 27
