    Ok so I went to the clinic today did a pregnancy blood test and they called me back few hours later and said yes I am pregnant and that my levels were 59....somthing don't remember. Anyhow the nurse told me to pick up progesterone vaginal inserts from them to use.

    I am not sure why though I ask she says it makes everything stick and increases implantation? have any of u used this? whats the side effects? I thought this is used prior to falling pregnant? I have not used any other fertility assisted drugs or anything, all the clinic did was tell me when I ovulate and then I :sex: around that time and fell pregnant. my LMP is Jan 1..

    I have been taking Progestrone Vaginally since I was 4 weeks!! Mine is kind of like what you'd use for a yeast infection but they are in individual already measured out applicators!! They help produce what your baby needs to live on!! Make sure you wear a pad as it comes out and STAINS everything!! you will also get clumps of the stuff coming out, dont' be alarmed. I got a really itchy AREA when starting because my body wasn't used to it!!

    I asked my doctor about this, but he came back with the response I expected to hear (since I had done some research). There is no proof that they do a thing to help vitality or sustain pregnancy - however they do make a lot of women sick and can cause cramping. It was essentially a replacement for DES.

    However, they aren't proven to do you any harm, either.
