hi lynette ,and congratulations on your great news.
i was put on cyclogest from e/c and told to take it twice daily for the first 12 weeks.a lot of other girls have been told the same.i cant see what harm it would do you to stay on it as you would be helping your body out with the extra progesterone but im no expert.
have you considered putting this question on the 'ask a nurse thread?' you should get a lot of responses over there.
best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy

Hi

After my BFP I had to stay on cyclogest (twice a day) until 12 weeks - then I weaned off to one per day until I ran out at 13 weeks.

Some clinics do stop cyclogest though when you get a BFP, but I think the majority keep people on it.

Good luck.

Congrats on your  ^banana^  ^BFP^  ^banana^

I too was told to take pessaries 2 a day until I was 10weeks with this pregnanacy.  But last time I got BFP I was only told to take it til 7weeks. 

Best Wishes for your pregnancy.

I was told by my clinic to get my doctor to prescribe it for the first trimester. And you know what? The [email protected] suggested I should pay for it privately!! I not so subtly pointed out that if he'd read DH's sperm test results properly 5 years ago I'd have been here a lot sooner, so now it's on the NHS!! Have also now found out I can get it for free and he told me I couldn't have an exemption form until I was at least 12wks!!! (little g*t!)

Sorry, but had to butt in..

Lizi, can't believe your GP has said this.  ^tantrum^  What a load of bumpkum!!  ^bigbad^  Has he given you the form to fill out?  If not ring your midwife team - your GP surgery should give you this at least! and explain the situation to them.  You don't need the GP signature on there - a midwife signature will do.  There are absolutely no rules regarding when someone can have their prescription exemption card.  I'm fortunate not to need anything, but got my card through within a week of getting my BFP! 

Good luck

Claire
