Progesterone

Okay ladies. I am needing opinions on progesterone pills. I've loosed all over online and have found several different options. Wondering what worked well with you. Good things, plus anything that you didn't like about a pill.
Thanks!

Did your doctor recommend them? Mine are 100 bucks per 50 for generic version, double for 100. Most insurance will cover them because preggos use them. Mine did and it paid for nothing else. This is my fourth time using them and I found they are easier to insert standing up. I'm in between doctors so I'm just using leftovers so I'm only taking one at bed. This will delay my period because of my leuthal phase defect. One pill will delay af to 28 day cycles, two stops it from coming at all. What else would you like to know?

I have taken them. One pill for 5 days at day 28. Sometimes I have had very light periods and some have been very heavy on it. I got to my local target and with there prescription plan it only cost me $4.00. The only thing I did not like was getting bad craps with on af.

Why does he recommended them? Low levels, leuthal phase, loss?

My dr prescribed me the vaginal capsules. I start taking them on cd 2 or 3. They have helped me a lot since I started them

We are currently trying to convince. And my last dr told me that he would like to put me on them when I became pregnant again.. So I am just wanting to gather information. I've heard that it makes some pregnancy symptoms worse. As in morning sickness.. Is this true?

I only use it AFTER a bfp and I use shots my ob gives me (I'm 38 weeks now and off them of course)
