I have just been having a conversation with Jo, where this lovely subject cropped up.

She told me she started her pessaries on day of EC. Which intrigued me as I've always started them on the night of my ET!

It's also something that played on my mind - this time around I had a day 3 transfer, which meant I effectively started my pessaries a day later than I would usually.

I am worrying that this delayed a build up of progesterone and perhaps this is why my af arrived early? On the other hand, I'm just a born worrier! So please let me know your experiences!

Thanks

As you know I start mine on the evening of EC, and have done for every cycle, but i am wondering why our clinic said i didn't need them last time, after I got pg, where other clinics keep you on them for 12 weeks ???
What do you make of that ??

Hope this helps

I started 400mg pessaries on day of ET.

I've got my first pregancy test on next Monday - I'm on the cylogest pessaries (which are odd!) but starting to feel bloated like my period is due. Is this normal?

Hi Sue

I started mine on the day of e/c (well that evening), including morning of e/t which made me feel a bit yukky and embarrased, but they give you a 'rinse'!!!  This was then to continue for only 12 days whether pg or not. 

Every clinic seems to be different, although my pg was ectopic, i for one have often wondered if stopping pessies this early made a difference to the other embie as i bled 3 days after stopping pessies.....prob not...but i would have been happier to stay on for first 12wks just in case.

Sorry for waffling, this is prob a different vote!!!!

Love Nic xx

I started with one up my bum from the Consultant on egg collection day.  I was mildly sedated at the time and saw/felt him do it together with an antibiotic.  I have been told to take them for 77 days, twice a day (12 hours apart) vaginally or rectally (must be rectally on morning of transfer otherwise it could interfere with the transfer), or until I get a negative blood test at which I should stop.

Hoep that's okeedokee, picketypokity!!

Started mine the day after et I think.  Or maybe it was the evening of et.  And it's twice a day for me until test date.  then if it was bfn, for another week.

damn those pessaries, i hate them!  Still the side effects start to calm down by the 2nd week.

I am on my 2nd round with a thawed egg, so started on pessaries as soon as a transfer date was valid (about a week before). I don't remember this many pimples last time though, and I forgot how bloated I would feel!

As for how long you take them for, I think it depends on your results and everyone is different. I had a hormone level of 63 on my blood test yesterday, so my consultant perscribed me 2 more weeks of pessaries and I am having another blood test tomorrow.  Depending on those results, he may decide that I also need progesterone injections.  It makes such a difference to be this closely monitored.

Hi Ladies,

I had to start mine morning after EC, back door, transferring to front door evening of ET. I was told the wind and bloatedness usually is due to back door insertion.

Thanks

Nope, it happens when you use the front door as well. I guess it's all connected.
