I have been taking the vaginal suppositories - one in the AM and one in the PM. The two biggest symptoms I've had are vivid crazy dreams, and thirst. There was also some bloating the first few days.

Also, I've read that if you take the medication vaginally the side effects are not as bad as if you take them orally. Try talking to your doctor about it?

It pinches when it goes into ur lower back/butt area n then u have pain in the area but it's not horrible u get used to it. Don't worry it's not as bad as I though after I saw the huge needle u don't feel it going in just a pinch sometimes.

I use the Crinone vaginal gel and the most noticeable side effects are cramps, sore boobs, and feeling very warm. I think it makes me a bit cranky too lol.
