Progesterone question please advice TIA:


Ok my specialist does a ovulation confirmation scan (TBD only Cd 4) I will start taking 300mg of progesterone daily for 10 days after ovulation is confirmed.  Also will have to get a progesterone level check done about 7/8 days post trigger shot.  And hopefully when I get a BFP on my HPT my OB is going to continue the progesterone supplement until 2nd trimester.  My question is after I get my BFP should I ask for vaginal progesterone?  I've heard it's better than the oral during pregnancy.  Just anted to hear from you ladies before I go in for this appointment and ask the questions.  If everything goes as we plan it I will be testing while we are on vacation and out of the country so I want to make sure that I have everything I need for a healthy pregnancy while I'm on vacation and until I can get back to see my OB/specialist.  Thank you so much in advance for your help and advice

Yes, the oral kind is not absorbed nearly as well. They usually prescribe oral capsules that you insert vaginally.
