Ok, those of you that have used oral, topical or progesterone suppositories... tell me what they did to you.
Increase breast tenderness?
Increased temp?
Sleeplessness, or tiredness?

Mamato Ruby Violet joy.gif(6 with autism) and someone 1sttri.gif who should make him/herself known sometime in the next month.

I used topical and it made me tired and for that reason I always applied it at night.

I used Topical Progesterone. It made me really itchy, but nothing else... No increased temp, no increased breast tenderness (not until after af was due, anyway)

I was really tired, but I associated that with the pregnancy, not the prog. It didn't start until later in the luteal phase.

I used a gel and it made me very sore and crampy. My temp did go up and bit and I was a little sleepy after taking it (it didn't last that long though). It looks like I will be back on it soon so if you have anymore questions feel free.....

I use vaginal progesterone suppositories. The lengthened my lp, made my breasts sore, and made me a bit crabby with dh. They also leak during the day, so I use them rectally during the day (Shannon also did that). However, while that method keeps everything in, it also made me a bit noisy and uncomfortable "bowel-wise." :

I used oral progesterone for a while, and it made me really sleepy and dazed all the time. I hated it - felt like I could barely function. Also progesterone shots, and those weren't a big problem at all.
