I know it's too early for implantation spotting, so I'm assuming it's just part of the color of the pill I see or something??? Also, I was having kind of heavy discharge before I started them (the creamy kind, tmi) and now it's more clear. Is that what your discharge is like?
I am on the same kind of Prometrium, but the doc has me taking them orally. I had a TON of discharge 1 dpo-9dpo very creamy and thick. 10 dpo I started spotting a little, and now I'm at 11 dpo. The brown spotting has continued. I still only had an 11 day luteal phase before I started spotting even with the Prometrium. The doc said he may increase my dosage next month. What dosage are you taking? Hoping for a BFP for you! I can't wait to just move onto next cycle!

Thanks for the info! So are you thinking you're out this month? Ugh, I know how frustrating that can be -- I'm sorry if that's the case. I'm on 200 mg... is that the norm? Did you have any of the pinkish discharge I described? I'd totally be lying if I said I'm not secretly holding out that it could be implantation spotting, but it just makes the most sense that it would just be a little color from the pills. The weird thing is that I "took" them last night around 10 or so, and then I saw the "spotting" today around noon-ish. Oh well, I'll just wait and see and keep praying for my BFP!

Sorry to hear about your m/c's... it sounds like you're the perfect candidate for Prometrium since it's used to support a pregnancy! I guess it's supposed to thicken the lining and make it easier for the egg to implant. I don't think Clomid is the best thing for you since you don't seem to have a problem getting pregnant, but if you want it, you should talk to your doctor. If I were you, I would just be honest with your doctor and say you've done a lot of research and it sounds like Prometrium could really help protect you from any additional losses. My doctor writes me RX's like crazy, so it's never hard for me to get Clomid, etc; however, I know a lot of women say their doctor wants them to try for at least a year before they begin any medicine. I hope that helps!

I'm about to start progesterone, I'm on 400mg of Cyclogest pessary, have used in past, the worst part I found was the mess!!! I was pg at the time so put any other symptoms down to this but my specialist said they can cause side effects but that they do settle down as your body adjusts to it.

Thanks so much for that, I think I may just speak with a doctor and see what happens from there - I am really interested in having some form of progesterone just to help keep a bean if I do become pregnant soon.

Thanks again x

Hey guys! Today is the second day I've had some ewcm and I'm 7 dpo. Are you guys seeing anything like that? Today it was tinged with pink, and of course I want to think that was implantation bleeding, but I think it was probably just from the color of the Prometrium pills (I'm taking them vaginally - gross). My breasts have also been feeling a bit weird... not really tingly, but something is going on... or maybe I'm just imagining it! LOL!
