I'm in panic mode! I'm two days away from a FET transfer and I just realized I've messed up my dose of prometrium (progesterone) all week!!! I was supposed to take 2 suppositories 3x a day (total 600 mg) but I've only been doing 1 each time (total 300 mg per day)! It's night now and I can't call my doctor and I'm panicking that I will have wasted this cycle. Anyone have any experience with this or know whether a low dose will ruin this cycle???

Not to sure but I agree I dont think it will stop this cycle. The one thing you have in your favor is the fact that it is a FET is that they don't thaw them out until the day of or maybe the day before your transfer so if anything it might post pone your transfer for a few days.

Update: The cycle has been cancelled. My misinformation about the dose has cost me a cycle :( I'm very disappointed but glad to have caught the mistake before a precious embryo was thawed!

As soon as AF arrives. Today is day 18, so it won't be for a few weeks. I'm very irregular though and last time had to have meds to start AF and still didn't get a day one for 50 days! I'm hoping for a quicker start this time. Thanks for your support.
