I just got a call after doing my blood test yesterday and the nurse is calling in a script for a suppository to raise my progesterone because it is low. Only 12.4 and they wanted to see it at 15...

anyone have this before? anyone getting these now?

I'm using progesterone suppositories.

I use one 200mg suppository at bed time. They do leak, so I'd recommend using a light pad.

Yep, a light pad or a panty liner will help tremendously. I am waiting for my results tomorrow to see if the NPC I am using is doing enough to keep my levels up. Hanny, curious, what does your RE like to see your progesterone at? I forgot to ask my OB today, he was too busy telling me all about his lab fees after a 24 hour urine test

Thanks for the tip!
I have to do it twice a day, not sure the mg.

I wonder why my doctor is only looking for 15?
