I'm taking Crinone after my IUI. I started it on Thursday and inserted it around 530pm. Since then, I've read I should use it in the am. Is there a way to switch the time I take it? I don't want to go too long without a dose or two doses too close together. Should I just continue on at the same time (530)? Or, can a take it a little earlier each day to get closer to the am?

TIA!

I think it would be fine to take a dose in the evening one day and take it again the next morning. My doctor has me taking Crinone twice a day this cycle so I think it's ok to have 2 doses less than 24 hours apart. From what I read Crinone releases into your body very gradually (it takes about 3 days for it to fully release) so you don't have to worry about having a super huge spike in progesterone if you have 2 doses closer together.

 

I've had cycles where I took Crinone in the evening and others where I took Crinone in the morning. I find that when I take it in the morning there is less buildup inside me so now I prefer the morning.

Awesome. Thanks. I've been moving up the time by a 1/2 hour every day. I'm totally neurotic. smile.gif I guess I can probably do an hour change every day if I want to switch the time gradually. Thanks for the info about how it's released slowly. That's good to know.
