Cyclogest Pesseries

Just a curious question to ask everyone and that is - When did you / or do you stop your cyclogest pesseries?
I stop mine in 12 days when im 3 months - But I have read some take it through till 14 weeks.

A cycle buddie over on the 2ww needed some info on pesseries and out of the posts she received i realised my dose is only 400mg 1 pesserie a day.

I feel apprehensive about stopping my pesserie, as its a bit like a safety net.

Yes I know what you mean Oll. I was a bit torn between being really scared that if I stopped something would go wrong and really excited that when I did stop I was really having a 'normal' pregnancy - it made it all a bit more real at that point.

I took mine for 77 days after EC - that works out about 11 wks I think and then had a week to slowly reduce them. I think I gradually cut them down to one every other day or so. On week 12 I stopped them completely.

only 12 more days until you are at the 3 months stage - that's fantastic!!

Yes I think I took mine til 12 weeks twice a day and then gradually reduced them down over the last week. After week 12 they are pretty pointless anyway as the placenta has taken over and is producing the progesterone itself.

Best of luck.

Hi Oll

I took 2 a day until the end of week 12 and then one a day for the next week, to wean my body off them (so until the end of week 13 in total).

It is a bit odd not having to take them any more - but rather nice at the same time, especially as we had to pay for ours at a pound a shot!

Like princess said, by week 12 the placenta should be producing the hormones, so don't be worried by coming off them - quite a few people take a lot less than you have anyway. Every clinic seems to use different criteria.

Oll

I was told just to stop at week 12! I am on 2 400's a day, so its 800 a day. I am going to wean myself off during the last week, maybe go down to one a day then one every other day till they are gone.

I too feel anxious to just stop.

Oll,

I was only on one pessarie a day during 2ww. However, I only had to use them for 15 days. I actually stopped a couple of days after test as that is when I was told to.

Hi QS

Just wanted to say huge congratulations on your BFP - what a fantastic Christmas present!!!

Yes the majority of people do seem to take the pessaries for 3 months, I know they did at my clinic. Some clinics differ though in the amount you take and for how long - I've since read that there is no concrete evidence the extra progesterone does any good but it did feel reassuring at the time.

Congratulations once again!

Great to have you over here! I took mine for 3 months, however there are a few on this site that only took them on the 2ww so it isnt unusual.

Every hospital has different approaches to pregnancy. Let us know when you get your scan date. Best of luck QS, hope it all goes really well for you xx

Hi QS,

I stopped with mine day after BFP. Thats when they ran out and clinic said they only give them for 15 days. It does seem that many clinics give them for 3 months, but my pg has not been affected by not having them for that long.

Congrats once again!!!!

Progesterone - Cyclogest

I have just finished my cyclogest and phoned my clinic to see if I should try and get some more to carry on using over the next few weeks and I was told that I should be fine mmmmmm.

Has anyone else just take cyclogest for the 2ww?, where can I get some more from because it's obvious that the hospital isn't going to give me anymore.

I was taking 800mg every day...should my progesterone level be ok, should I worry about this?

Thanks for your help smile2

I'm still taking my progesterone. I saw my doc on Thursday and she told me that i can stop everything else in the next week or two, but gave me a new prescription for progesterone and told me to keep taking it until about week 10 to 12.
If it was me I'd try to speak to someone else at the clinic . Good luck,

I'm taking it up to 12 weeks but my GP just did me a prescription for it. Worth a try asking your GP if you want to carry on but first I would ask the clinic why they think you'll be ok without it. Is it based on your progesterone levels in your blood or is that just their protocol.

RE: Progesterone - Cyclogest

Hi,

I ws only given them for my 2ww and then told to come off them straight away. I didn't even mention it to them but realised when I came on FZ that a lot of girls were taking them for a lot longer.

Hi

I was worried about this too as mine ran out when I got my BFP. I spoke to the clinic and they said it was fine to stop. I've had no blood test either.
I didn't think to go to my doctor as I'm sure they would just say if the clinic has told you to stop then that's what you should do.

It's another worry that we don't need and I wish all the clinics would do the same thing !!

Good luck

Progesterone Pessaries

Hi Everyone

Started my pessaries yesterday and just wondered if anyone else was taking them...Sorry if TMI but I have quite a bit of leakage once they have melted. I am inserting them far enough so I assume this is normal?

thanks xx

I have used pessaries in the past. Messy indeed when used on the front. However, I have found Utrogestan alot less messy though. I suppose it's down to what course of treatment is preferred or needed..

Hi hunni
I had to take them until 12 weeks pg, then tail them off gradually. Think it was just my clinic's way of doing things as others were able to stop as soon as they had their BFP.
I carried on but boy I was pleased to get rid of them !!

I had two a day for 11 weeks, then one a day for the 12th week, then stopped. It's pretty scary stopping because you feel like you've lost your crutch. But actually your body is well able to do it on its own well before then. Clinics that go to 12 weeks are being very conservative.

I am 6wks and still taking 2 pessaries a day along with gestone injection, clexane and baby asprin. Not sure if they will reduce my meds when I go for my scan next
Tuesday no two clinics are the same. I am eating alot more but seem to be snacking rather than sitting down for a good old pig out. Just enjoying not feeling guilty about eating all the time is great :D

Hi there

I have been on 3 a day since spotting in the 4th-5th week. We had our first scan on Monday where they said everything looked fine and they detected a good heartbeat. However, I've still got to carry on with the 3 a day and not decrease to 2 a day, despite having no spotting since then. Has anyone else heard of this?

Stopping cyclogest and progynova

Hi everyone
I had medicated fet and am due to stop taking cyclogest and progynova tomorrow as i am now 12wks (YEH :)). I had 12wk scan yesterday and little bubs was doing a jig for us and they said everything looked fine.

I was just wondering if anyone else had, had a medicated fet and then stopped taking drugs at 12wks - did you feel any different? were symptoms less/more? I just worry too much and hope that my body will be ok without the drugs and that little bubs will be ok.

I stopped taking Cyclogest at 5 weeks and was worry that the babies might suffer, but I am 8 weeks now and they are doing fine. Have you talked to your clinic/ mw about your worries as they will be able to put your mind at rest.

Well done on reaching your 12weeks!!!

I rang them last week and they said just to stop taking them - i said about doing it gradually and they said wouldn't need to.

I stopped after 12 weeks following IVF. By that stage in your pregnancy its the placenta which does the job, so you really don't need it any more. I think its only a very small number of women who actually need it after 4-6 weeks - its just the clinics covering all bases by giving it to you.

It does vary from clinic to clinic. I had a fresh cycle and stopped as soon as I had my BFP. Thats how my clinic worked.
