I was able to switch my meds from injectable Progesterone to the "up your crotch" kind? I am not sure how else to say that, but since this is an infertility blog I figure that it is ok. The meds are called crinone gel and it doesn't hurt at all so YAY! I am feeling much better. But again I am getting myself into trouble by reading too much. I read too many blogs, forums, books, and drug facts pamphlets which list the side effects. I kinda wish I didn't read that on the crinone gel because it said it can cause birth defects if used early in pregnancy. Well, if I am pregnant it would be early in pregnancy. Why would a doctor prescribe medicine if it can cause birth defects? That seems a bit strange.
