Medication has arrived!!

Medication has arrived but have been told that I need to take 400mg of pessaries twice a day rather than 200mg three times a day. Will I need to double up in the morning and evening? Sounds a bit grim if I do 😫x

I know that everyone is a bit different, I’ve been given Cyclogest 400mg pessaries so take one in the morning and then one 12 hours later.

What dosage are the ones that have arrived for you?? If they are the same then you shouldnt need to double up but if you’re worried check with your clinic Xx

They are 200mg!! Going for a repeat injection training soon so can ask then. Plenty of time until I need to start using them x

Hi cls37. Twice a day is best in my opinion - bit less hassle. Try and keep to 12 hours apart to suit you. If you are to have 400mgs, they do come in that strength, rather than having to do 2 at a time. Good luck when you start your cycle. Diane

It's just less hassle, popping one in rather than two! Diane
