I had to use a progesterone suppository and I also had spotting. I went to the hospital and the OB said it’s a normal side effect and not to worry. She had me stop taking it at that point since I was far enough along to be able to go off of it anyway.

@heathaah: When do you use the suppository? Morning, night? Is it coincidence that the “spotting” is only happening in the morning? Are you using the supp at night?

For my prescription they gave me an oral pill but instructed me to use it as a suppository.

I’m not pregnant (yet!) but I’m on Prometrium suppositories following an IUI and I definitely have been getting some spotting-tinged CM this time around though it could be because I had a terrible IUI experience this past time.

Hang in there!

Congrats again H! I’m so glad the spotting wasn’t anything to be worried about.

I definitely have had some spotting while on the suppositories, but it was always around 5-6 dpo and only then fwiw.  I think the prometrium in oil kind were generally less irritating for me than the endometrin dry tablet kind.  However, the endometrin always ‘came out’ as white, the same color as the tablet, but the prometrium gel caps were peach in color so the discharge was always pinky from that.

@heathaah: I asked my nurse last night about the suppositories since it was my designated night for the shot. Apparently the main difference is that the shot is shown to be more effective. The shot starts at 16-20 weeks and I have to take it till 36-37 weeks. The shot is to prevent preterm labor, I don’t know if the suppository is the same. I didn;t think to ask her that…of course. 🙂

@StormyRose: I needed the Progesterone for a different problem, so mine started the minute I got a BFP and I was able to stop taking them a few weeks later.

@heathaah: Could you ask your doctor if you can switch to an oral dose? I’m on 200mg or Prometrium twice daily because I started spotting at 5wks. I’m not sure if there are advantages to the type of dose he prescribed you, but it wouldn’t hurt to ask 🙂
