I agree that it is worth lying down for half an hour after sticking it in. It wasn't until my 5th IUI that a nurse suggested trying this and I definately felt like I lost less and it at least stayed put for a bit longer. I found I had to wear a panty liner all the time though cos even with lying down you do get a lot of leakage. I never tried rectally, maybe that is even better. Gross things!

Hi Jo

I asked the hospital about this last time, they said it made no difference. I've gone for rectal as my kidneys seem to work overtime, my theory is that that the lovely pessary gets to stay in a bit longer that way.

i did ask this question my self yesterday following my ET. either way is ok and absorption rate is the same either way, provided you liedown for atleast 20 minsa when done vaginally.yes a liner needed for the mess it makes but do not worry as this is not the drug only the vegetable fat that is used to allow the hormone to be inserted.

I was told that you only need 15% of the progesterone anyway, and it's absorbed really quickly into the body, so I shouldn't worry about the fact that they run out when done vaginally.  I was getting such a bad mixture of constipation and diarhea (sp?!) that I couldn't bear to continue with them rectally, so I do them vaginally now.  Much happier!!
