Hello, I have been lurking here for a while and have decided that it was finally time to say hi.
I also have a question about progesterone. I had a 5 day transfer on monday and I was late on one of my progesterone doses. I take the progesterone suppositories 2x a day and I was about 45mins late on my evening dose. I read online that with the shots it is not a big deal but I couldn't find anything about the suppositories. Does anyone have any idea how bad this is?
I only did the shots and my last cycle, I was late quite often. I don't *think* it would make that much of a difference....BUT
I tried to look up any online info regarding progesterone suppository half-life, but had no luck. I seem to remember my ARNP telling me they have about a 12 hour half-life (these were compounded progesterone suppositories), so I think if you are 45 min late it is not a big deal.
I was always told I had an hour window on either side for meds. I think you should be ok.
IVF #1-cancelled d/t embryos arresting before transfer (3/09)
IVF #2-BFP 9wks-7/30/09 (6/09)
IVF #3-BFN (5/10)
Thank you so much for all of the advise. I am hoping and praying that this works.
Your are perfectly fine - just make sure to take ever dose within a 23-25 time frame of the last one. Good luck!
