Anyone been on Prog. Suppositories??

Hey Ladies!

I am on the March board (but could be a fence sitter on yours too) since I am due March 4. Anywho, I have been on progesterone suppositories since week 6 or so. I had my first ob appointment 2 days ago and my doc said I could go off of them. So last night about midnight I went pee and had a little spotting and have had some today too (brown now). I called my mom (she's a nurse at my ob's office) and she said it is totally normal to be spotting since I had my pap & pelvic exam two days ago. The baby was kicking and very active on U/S the other day so I don't think anything is wrong. I am just really scared that coming off the suppositories is causing this. I have some left so I put one in today and plan to do one a day until they are gone. I looked online and others have said that they spotted when they came off of them too and everything turned out ok. Have any of you experienced this??? Thanks for reading my ramblings. Smile

I was on progesterone suppositories for this pregnancy too. But I followed my own plan for this pregnancy LOL. I started them a couple of days before the RE stated. Because I felt I ovulated earlier. I also went longer then 12 weeks doing them because I was worried since I had measured a few days behind an early ultrasound. But I did not have any bleeding after stopping them. But to be honest, I haven't had any bleeding during this pregnancy expect when the midwive gave me a pap. I wouldn't worry too much, it's more then likely from the pap.

I was on them from the day I ovulated until yesterday! My RE is really careful and checked my levels probably 10 times. I was on 400 mg 2x's daily. They waited until my level hit 30 at 13 weeks to back me down to 1x then they checked my level again. It was 32, so they had me stop yesterday and are checking my levels again Monday. If they are still good then, I am done.

That said, I have had no spotting. I would assume that yours is most likely from the Pap. I know it is very common to spot after them (even if you aren't pregnant). However, if you are concerned, ask your doctor to check your progesterone and make sure it is still high enough. If nothing else, it would give you peace of mind.
