@KitKatNYC:  The shots give you soooo much more support!  I’m on the PIO shots as well and will be for a few more weeks.  🙂

@dodgercpkl:  What shots are you guys talking about? Is it progesterone?

The only thing my doctor gave me was progesterone supplements.

@Evie19:  PIO shots is indeed progesterone (stands for Progesterone in Oil).  It’s a higher level of progesterone support than the supplements.  I was on vaginal suppositories with my last loss and they happened to check my progesterone both at 7dpo and at 16dpo that cycle and saw that it was a HUGE drop that couldn’t be explained off by the miscarriage.  So they switched me to PIO shots and that’s been just the support that I needed.  My butt hates me for them though.  lol

@dodgercpkl:  Ouch! Well, it’s definitely worth it. 🙂 

I hope my pill dose of progesterone is enough…maybe I should ask my doctor about the shots.

@dodgercpkl:  Ack I remember the shots. Every time I had to hurry up and jog across the street because the traffic light was changing, it felt like I was being kicked in the butt with each step.

OP – I wouldn’t worry if I were you. I was given the shots because at my first appointment when my hormone levels were checked, my progesterone was low.
