Hey guys. I was prescribed progesterone after my IUI last thursday. ANd i am suppose to start today sunday. I went to the pharmacy and they would not fill the proscription until my doctor called. The pharmacy said she had never heard of taking it vaginally. SO...thank god i got my doctor on the phone she cleared that up so i could get them. Then when i went to pick them up i asked the pharmacist how do i do this how do i take it. SHE said honey i told you i have never prescribed this for vaginal use this is for oral use. So she had no advice for me. DO i have the right pill? Its a white pill oval shape 200mg capsule. I just put it up there is no applicator. Does this sound normal? i am looking and people seem to have suppositories, but that is not what i have. JUst wanted to check that i have the right thing. ANy advice would be helpful. Thank You.View Thread
