GREAT news on the number jump - wow!! for the p4, it has been a while for me - I only did crinone on my successful cycle but if you are stressed, I don't see how it could hurt to up it. You'll have peace of mind at least. I would ask/make the request to see what they say and/or at least get some on hand so you have the option. I'm sure others will have more specific thoughts.
They already yelled at me. I added a 3rd dose on Sat and Sunday. Level came back at 7 on Monday. They told me to not do the 3rd dose. It dropped from 7 to 5...

Nice! I totally get being guarded - I would be the same way - cautiously optimistic
This is encouraging! Totally get feeling guarded -been there. Although the PIO injections su*k I think it is stil the best form/delivery of progesterone IMHO. And you can't have too much - better safe than not. I cycled w/Cooper and you know Check's feeling on progesterone. My OB thought the progesterone was excessive but I kept it up anyway. Keeping you in my thoughts.

If you want an accurate measure of P4 in your blood, you should be on PIO. (Crinone and other suppositories don't give accurate blood levels--right?) Are you spotting or cramping? If not, it is probably fine but after all these years "probably fine" doesn't cut it!

Ask for PIO if it would give you better peace of mind.
No spotting and a cramp only occasionally. The "should be fine" part is what scares me!

It's 116. Up from 46. The draw was done 72 hrs apart. Doubling time is 54 hours. I know it's well within normal limits and much better than last time. But I'm still incredibly scared and guarded. Also, Im on crinone 2X /day and p4 is only 5. RBA says that's fine but it scares the crap out of me and I want to increase it on my own. Thoughts? Should I just ask to switch to PIO?
Ask to take oral prometium. I was on both crinone and prometium for my first cycle. I am so glad the number doubled for you. Fingers crossed for your next hurdle. FB

That's exactly where my concerns about p4 come from! I know he was a big proponent of more p4... I guess I was concerned if too much crinone would cause the cervix to get irritated and cause bleeding.

I hate it when the clinics "think" they know best. The only thing good about my history is that now I get everything that I want med wise. No one wants to get blamed. I hope they will let u take some with 5 as your level. I wish I could send u some but my leftovers are 2 yr old. FB

I used up all I had last time and always got as many refills as I could. But they've all run out. I'm just going to ask for PIO today. I should be able t get it tomorrow. It will ease a part of my brain/heart!

Thinking of you today.
