I am having to take Progesterone ( first day taking it ) and about 20 minutes after it dissolved in my mouth I felt super SUPER tired and had to take a nap. It felt like I had taken a sleeping pill. Anyone else had experience with Progesterone. Sleepy, nausea, what can I expect???

  • I am on the vaginal suppositories. You can ask your Dr to switch you. I have a toddler so I don't get naps.

  • nope i took the pill the shot and the cream and it didnt affect me at all. i did gain a lot of weight tho. like literally 20 lbs. thank god i lost it finally lol. its a pregnancy hormone so it could make you tired.

  • I had the weekly shots for pretty much the entire pregnancy. You'll get used to it. My energy came back second trimester. But yeah for the first trimester about all I did was sleep.
