Progesterone

Did anyone else have to take it?  If so how long?  I was prescribed the progesterone in oil which has to be injected intramusculaly ie with a friggin long @ss needle to the butt!  I've been on it for 5 weeks now and my RE wants me to continue for another week.  I nearly cried bc its so painful for me and torturous for DH (he's the one who injects me).  I tried icing it the area but my butt is still so bruised and lumpy afterwards :*(

I didn't know oral was an option!  I was given a choice of shots or suppositories.  I opted for the shots bc I heard the supps could be messy.  Had I known the shots would be more painful as time went by I would have gone for the supps but I had already ordered my prescription.

I had suppositories before, while seeing my old RE in Dallas...it kinda sucked but it usually wasn't "messy" by morning... But I did wear a pantiliner at nite....that RE said they didn't prefer oral because it breaks down faster in your digestive tract.... So I guess it depends on how low you are....my pregnancy is not from IUI or IVF so my levels were fine with oral apparently...
