Question

Progesterone suppositories...

Nov 8th, 2016, 13:05 PM   #1
 
Hi ladies,
Ive been given progesterone pessaries, but they've said they dont come with an applicator :S
I used to suffer with vaginismus (Unable to insert things into vagina)...It been better over the years, but ive never been able to insert my own fingers, the thought makes me so squeamish...
So how am I going to insert these with my fingers urghh.

I was told to use them rectally, even more delightful. It is actually better as less mess. No advice apart from you will get used to it, I know its not nice though xx

Can go up either end. Bottom at night time is easier. Go in easily.

Usually have to be used twice a day. I think it's normal, I have heard there is a lot of mess that way. My clinic said I had to use rectally. Was absolutely horrified at first but no mess at all xx

Mine said to go either way. I alternate a bit as you get the mess at the front (as you all have said) and I get a bit of a disturbed toilet experience if I only put them up the back. That was the nicest way I could put that!

Ahh nope. Not going up my bum xD
the dr said use one a day at bed time, and gave me a high dose of it? 400 mg. Less seemed to leak out this morning.
She told me to expect spotting and cramps but none yet ? Xx

I was on 400mg 3 x a day. Was supposed to be twice a day but he said it was fine if I used extra so I did. No applicators for mine either xx

I was on 400mg two a day as well and didn't get applicators. It's def normal for them to be messy..urgh don't miss it one bit lol! I went through a lot of liners! I can't insert tampons or anything and feel a bit squemish about stuff like thrush pessaries but I find the cyclogest is so waxy and oily kinda thing it was much easier to put in lol so didn't make me feel as squemish! You def get used to it as well .
Maybe you could keep asking OH too? Lol mine did a lot when I was really sick with hg and just moving made me throw up so he used to do them for me lol.
I got told rectally is much less messy too but I never tried it xxx

There is zero mess with rectally. But I understand why you wouldn't want to. I wasn't given the option though, I did read that vaginally can cause irritation if prone to thrush or urine infections which I am so would have chosen that anyway. Myself and OH called them bum bullets lol xx
