Quick question for you ladies who have used progesterone suppositories..

I've been taking the suppositories since last Wednesday- 200mg in the am and 200mg in the pm. This morning I forgot to take the suppository, and 6 hours later I noticed some spotting. When I got home 2 hours after that, I immediately inserted the suppository.

I'm cramping very lightly here and there (but I have been off and on for the past week), I'm not noticing any spotting now. Do you think the spotting was due to missing my one suppository? Or maybe just normal spotting?

I had my progesterone rechecked today and got my 3rd HCG draw, I will have the results tomorrow, so I will have a better idea on how things are going by then. Just still worried of course and wanted to see if you guys have been through this. Thanks!

Hi Veronica,

Try not to panic. Spotting in pregnancy can be very normal. Ewar had quite a lot of spotting in early pregnancy and she's due to pop any day now :D I'm sure everything is fine your tests look great for progression. Don't stress to much until you get your progesterone and HCG results. Have you let your Dr know that you are using the Progesterone? Think it might be a good idea particularly since your getting your progesterone checked regularly.

V - Don't worry too much about the spotting as shia said. All normal. They only say you should be concerned if you have cramps and heavy bleeding. :D

My results are in..

Progesterone= 13
HCG= 242 (46 hour doubling)

Ughhhh. This is so stressful. Technically my #'s are doubling as they should, but it's just happening so slowly. And its down from my initial doubling time of 36 hours. AND my progesterone is still on the lower side. Not sure what to think! I have another blood test tomorrow- we'll see what my HCG shows then.

Also- I read online that progesterone suppositories don't affect blood results. Is that true? I read that only shots or oral pills will get into the blood stream... Just wondering if any of you have heard the same?

I had spotting from week 5/6 until week 8/9 at least. I was doing progesterone suppositories too, some of the spotting was from cervical irritation from putting them too high. The rest I think was just stuff coming out before my cervix closed completely. I didn't have betas done until I was spotting in week 6, so I don't know what my early numbers were, but my Wondfo progression looked similar to yours. Didn't get a line darker than the control until I was 6 weeks along.

At 8 weeks dating ultrasound everything was perfect!

So, don't give up!!!!

Thank you GKR!!

Also- just wanted to update for anyone else who may read this and is curious about the progesterone question I had. Progesterone suppositories inserted vaginally affect blood results very very minimally. When the progesterone is administered this way it is absorbed directly into the uterus and barely any makes it into the blood stream. Patients who take vaginal supplements have 6 times lower amounts of progesterone in their blood vs. patients who take shots or administer orally, however, the level of progesterone measured in patients (who administer vaginally) is 2.5 times higher in their uterus than other patients.

This means that although my blood progesterone is low, their should be plenty of progesterone in my uterus. This also means that my progesterone (in the blood) is mostly rising on its own, so that's good :) Hopefully it keeps rising.. not sure if we will test that again or not. I'll probably ask again in a week or so if things continue to progress.

Sorry Shia I just saw this. How scary that your baby girl has the chord around her neck! Sounds like the Dr's are monitoring you closely, can't wait to see pics when she is born. She'll be here before you know it!

I know it's hard but you gotta relax and just enjoy your pregnancy. Whatever happens you will face and be ok. But think about holding your sweet baby and looking back and wondering why you didn't enjoy the first days of knowing you were growing your baby. I think things are sounding very positive and you just have to take it one day at a time.

Unfortunately I have a bad update. My levels dropped from 242 to 184 in 48 hours. Dr says this is likely miscarriage #2.

I'm stopping the progesterone and waiting for the bleeding to begin. Really really sick of this. I don't know what was worse.. never getting pregnant for 16 cycles or having 2 miscarriages within 3 months. I just wish I knew what was wrong.
