Utrogestan on transfer day??

Hi all, just wondering what advice you have been given re pessaries on day of transfer? I was on cyclogest before and told to do it rectally on morning of transfer. Using utrogestan this time so has to be vaginally. My treatment plan says nothing about not taking it on the day so assume I take it as normal but thinking that will be messy and wouldn't want it to interfere with the embryo. Surely if you dont take it they would have said and put it in the plan but want to be sure. Any advice greatly received xx

I think I had to do utrogestan on transfer day but can’t completely remember. What I do remember is that the consultant told me that all the active ingredient is absorbed within about 20 minutes so them then doing a procedure wouldn’t matter in terms of the drug working. I can’t imagine they’d be bothered about a bit of mess though.

Hiya, my clinic told me to delay using the vaginal pessarie until after the ET. Then continue as usual there after. Good luck x

Thank you. My last clinic included info in the treatment plan about this but nothing this time. Provisionally booked in for 1pm so im sure waiting til after wont cause a problem. Will try and ring in morning to double check. There is always something to worry about! Thanks xx

Both Cyclogest and Uterogestran are progesterone dear one so no worries there. As far as I know, they change the compound as it's said that when it comes to hormonal medicine some brand suits some while some other suits other women .... so they keep changing the brand initially. Same goes for hormonal contraceptives. IT won't affect the procedure anyway so might just continue taking it. If it were important they'd have instructed not to take it. Stay positive and have hope.. everything will be alright. Wish you all the very best for the egg extraction procedure! XOXO
