My doc just put me on progesterone suppositories today, mainly to get me to stop calling the office hysterically. I woke up this morning w/most of my pregnancy symptoms gone (breast tenderness, frequent urination & constipation) but my temp was still good. I'm just 4 wks today so it's really early but I've tried for a long time and never come this close. I begged the docs for a progesterone supplement because I figured it couldn't hurt and now the breast tenderness is back but I'm guessing that's just the progesterone supplement. Has anyone else been through this? Any thoughts?

Progesterone Supplement Effects

Try not to worry too much. I'm 9 weeks pregnant, and have been taking prometrium suppositories since my IVF and my breasts really aren't that sensitive. Though they have been in previous cycles. Everyone is different.
I don't feel pregnant at all (knocking on wood). I haven't been puking. My bloating passed after learning to eat several small meals. Although, I am awfully fatigued (which is also a side effect of the prometrium) and I pee all the time...those are my only symptoms.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I was on progesterone supp for both my IVF and FET cycle. My breasts were not really sore in the beginning of my pregnancy, but they did become barely touchable by my 6-8th week of pregnancy. I had NO morning sickness, was not overly tired, and frankly did not "feel" pregnant at all. In fact, I really didn't feel "pregnant" until I felt my babes move and that was around 18 weeks of pregnancy! The only symptoms that I felt that were out of the ordinary in very early pregnancy was a pulling, twinging sensation in my lower abdomen. So, please try not to worry, everyone truly is different with their symtpoms and many do not have any of the "common" symptoms at all. The progesterone is probably making your bb's sore now but once your body begins producing copious amounts of its own progesterone and additional hormones produced by the baby's placenta your symptoms will probably shift or come back in full force.
Congrats on your pregnancy!
