Just wondering if anyone else has changed progesterone at their beta? I have been using Crinone since retrieval, and due to some problems expect my clinic to confirm I need to switch to another kind (prometrium or endometrin likely). I have been getting a BFP on home tests, and I am a little worried the switch might cause a shift in progesterone levels or be a risk? Has anyone else done this?

I switched once from pio to endometrin and my levels stayed the same. I was also suppose to switch from endometrin to crinone last try but didnt make it to the switch. It is done more often then you would think.
My nephew is a perfect example of it not being an issue. He is graduating high school in a few weeks and my sister had to switch due to allergic reaction to the first type of progesterone she was on
