I thought the same thing but then I searched online and found out that a progesterone allergy is a well documented phenomenon in medical literature. There are two types--there are people who every month after ovulation develop a rash and/or eczema, and it is because they are reacting to the progesterone their own bodies make, and then there are documented cases of people who are actually allergic to outside sources of progesterone (but did not react to their own post ovulation)!
Katies mom, thanks so much for the compounding pharmacy info. If I don't test allergic for progesterone, I think I'll order a preservative-free PIO direct from there. Although, shouldn't all our medications really be preservative-free?! I njecting ourselves with mercury, a usual preservative in medications (vaccinations), really doesn't sound like a good idea, especially while trying to get pregnant! Since you were sensitive to the preservative, it is something to keep in mind that your children might be sensitive to preservatives in vaccinations, if you chose to go that route.
