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.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

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.
