So I thought I’d make an entry about the progesterone I have been taking now for 7 days.
The word suppository freaks me out first of all, but it honestly hasn’t been that bad. I have not experienced any side effects from it so far. The only thing the nurse said was before putting a new one in do a “finger sweep” to get any leftover stuff out. This is the part that has GROOOOOOOOOSSSED me out beyond anything.
But I’ve not had much pain a little bloating which seems to be the norm lately.
I definitely cannot wait to be done with the Progesterone it’s not a walk in the park make sure you have plenty pads you will need them.
Today was also the first day I started to test for my LH surge ( Luteinizing Hormone) this is the hormone produced by gonadotropic cells in the anterior pituitary gland. In Females, an acute rise of LH triggers ovulation. We got a negative surge today but It is only 11 days post cycle end. I have been consistent with day 14 LH surge which would be Friday. I will test until we get a positive Surge.
