I don't do well with them. Hurts a lot. But I'm basically like "I'm sorry I will hold still but I can't do more than that, just do what has to be done, I'm not angry at you."

I don't scream or move around. But in the past I've had gynos refuse to do a pap smear because I was too tight. I'm getting a little better?

Having one tomorrow but the nurse has made a note to try abdominal first.

I think you should try rectally.

You don't even need to put your finger in.

I used to have issues with pap smears in my 20s.

Your other option is trouche - that's oral. it dissolves in your mouth. You could ask a compounding chemist if they will compound trouche instead of pesseries.. i have both.

The progesterone certainly hits, doesn't it?

Sleepiness, dizziness, back pain.

At least I know it got in far enough to work. But I'll be glad to be past the stage that needs it. (first trimester?)

Its likely you wont need it that long. If your levels are high enough when you get a positive pregnancy test you can go off it.

I wasn't on it for 12 weeks when I was pg with Jack.

and neither was @sunstarmoon

Yep, was already planning to have one today.

So thankful I have options. A girl on fb had bloods on Thursday and was only 24, she has to wait til tomorrow.

I managed to get bloods twice over the easter long weekend.

I did, very similar to the am line yesterday.

I am now convinced concentrated urine over powers the HCG.

Have ran out of tests - and 3 x 3 different brands.

I’m really sorry Ozgirl.

My HPTs are still strongly positive when I miscarried weeks ago and had a d&c 11 days ago. Not even going to bother tracking it that way anymore.

Hi ladies, I hope you don’t mind me joining you. Today is day 1 of my 1st IVF cycle. My DH and I have been TTC #1 for 2yrs. Had an ectopic in 2019 and a lap late last year which confirmed endo and a blocked Fallopian tube. I’m hoping that IVF will help us get around that obstacle. I’m feeling disappointed that our TTC journey has led us here, but somewhat relieved that we are finally trying something different. I know it could still be a long road ahead.
