Hi,

Could you tell me what effect taking or not taking Cyclogest pessaries would have on an early IVF pregnancy?

Dear Trace,

Cyclogest pessaries contain the hormone progesterone which is absolutely essential in order to establish a preganacy following IVF. You can receive the hormone via injection if you prefer (it is called gestone in this form) but most people opt for the pessaries nowadays.

Hope this helps!

Hi Peter

Thanks for the reply, Could you tell me if I stop using cyclogest during early pregnancy what effect, if any, would that have on an IVF pregnancy?

Dear Trace,

Stopping cyclogest could result in the loss of the pregnancy. It is best to continue with any prescribed drugs until your physician tells you otherwise.

Hope this helps!

Hi Peter

I am still in shock having just got a positive home pregnancy result 14 days post embryo transfer.

After speaking to my clinic today they have advised me to stop taking the Cyclogest pessaries I was prescribed (I have been using 2x 400mg pessaries every night, and have another four days supply).

But I am now concerned after reading your replies to Trace's questions that I have possibly been told to stop the pessaries prematurely?!

Please help!!!

Regards

dear Jools,

CONGRATULATIONS!!

It is the early early stages of pregnancy (before day 14)
when these are needed. Once the embryo is established it will produce plenty of progesterone itself. Always follow the advice of your clinic, they know your case and will always give you the best advice.

Good luck!!
