GHOST - Crinone vs PIO shots

Postby Reem » Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:56 pm

Hello Ghost and everyone who has experienced this,

my clinic is giving me the choice between using crinone gel 8% or doing PIO shots!

Most doctors I know prefer to prescribe PIO.

The studies I've seen reported similar success rates with the two.

I prefer PIO over anything I have to insert vaginally. It seems like anything vaginally upsets my natural balance and irritates the crap out of me. My RE says it could not affect a cycle, but when I used estrace and progesterone suppositories I was very uncomfortable adding additional stress to the whole IVF process.
