Everything else said intercourse then suppository. Something to do with the absorption rate.

I'm assuming you're taking the progesterone to avoid miscarriage. I'd wait till you get the green light from the doctor. I'd be afraid to do anything to jeapordize the pregnancy.

Heh, I had wacky crazy nookie while on progesterone. I was taking the type you rub into your belly, though, so I don't think that helps.

I was on Prometrium (used as a suppository) on and off for about 9 months while TTC and I was concerned about hormone exposure for my partner. I asked my dr. and she hadn't thought of that before. She said that she thought the hormone would be absorbed within a few hours. So, yes, intercourse, then suppository at night and she thought I shouldn't worry about his exposure the next day. But then her "hadn't thought of that before" isn't really persuasive.
