Have any of you used progesterone suppositories during early pregnancy or been told you had low progesterone? My levels were tested and came back significantly lower than where they should be (Im 7 weeks along) and Ill be starting the medication to try and avoid a miscarriage but Im worried about whether Im a high risk and if it will be enough? Hoping to hear from anyone who has dealt with this as none of my friends who are moms have. TIA!

I took the suppositories through 10-12 weeks as part of my IVF cycle. (I'm at 33 weeks now). But I'm not sure if it was because my progesterone was low, or if it was part of the normal cycle planning. I've also read that you can get shots too if progesterone is super low? I think the good news is that they detected the low levels early, and the suppositories should really help with that. for you!

Same as D1, was part of protocol for my two IVF pregnancies (and it made me very bloated!)

Also did suppositories as part of IVF. Im doing it in addition to the progesterone in oil injections and I cant believe Im saying this but I prefer the injections. The suppositories leak and Im always worried about whether theyre getting absorbed, plus its messy af and youll need to wear a panty liner. But so far my levels are where they want it so I guess its working.

I also am using the progesterone suppositories as part of IVF. 9 weeks along now and Im hoping to transition off the suppositories (and the nasty progesterone-in-oil shots) this week. Theyre only needed until the placenta begins producing enough progesterone on its own. Interestingly, my doctor told me the suppositories dont show up in a blood test because they go directly to the uterus, so it will be tough to know your progesterone levels if thats all youre doing. I started with the suppositories 3x/day after my transfer and have gradually tapered down to 1x.

Very interesting, Ill keep that in mind when monitoring the levels via more blood work and Ill ask my dr about that. Thanks for sharing your insight! Yay for almost being done with the shots 戊

My wife has low progesterone levels and we took letrozole orally during our attempts to get pregnant. After we did pregnant she has been taking vaginal suppositories based on our gynaecologist recommendations.

Yep! I had to my first round of IVF. My doctor said due to the medication, your body wont produce it naturally.

I've heard a couple of things about how the partner pension amount @ PwC is determined, both similar in approach.

Both calculations I have heard of result in an annuity paid until death, at which point a surviving spouse (if any) receives the annuity.

The first calculation I have heard is that you get 80% of your highest earning year as a partner (e.g. If your best year was $1M, you'd get $800k as an annuity).

The second calculation I have heard is that they look at your three highest earning years as a partner, and take the second highest and you get 100% of that. (e.g if your three highest earning years were $1M, $800k, and $1.2M, you'd receive $1M as an annuity).

Is ANY of this true, or just all rumor? Any PwC partners that can chime in and explain the pension plan fact for fact? Perhaps with sample numbers?
