    Question Newbie with Progesterone question

    Hello Everyone!

    Brand new to this board, and I already have a question. How soon after the IUI do you start the Progesterone? Also, the Progesterone pills made me so sedated; do you think the suppositories will have less of this side effect?

    Hi there! My RE instructed me to start taking them the day after IUI. I've taken the supps, and they don't make me feel tired or anything. Just a little bloated. Good luck! They're a little messy, but worth the trouble if we get that ++++++!

    I start the Progesterone the day after the IUI.
    Can't help with the fatigue question progesterone is naturally sedating so I think it may happen again but with suppositories less will go into blood than with the pills.

    Hope you get a BFP.
