I had two miscarriages and I'm now trying to get pregnant again,

This answer was rated:

I had two miscarriages and I'm now trying to get pregnant again, my gyno prescribed me cyclogest as she found my progesterone levels low; I start taking it 3 days ago, on day after ovulation; twice a day vaginally;
As I'm subject to thrush could I take it by rectum or it will change the effect or absorption of the pessarie?
I don't want to jeopardise my chance of a healthy pregnancy ... Thanks


Yes you can use the cyclogest rectally--it will be absorbed just as well that way as vaginally.

That said, since I'm not your doctor you need to ask her about this first

Let me know if you need any more information please
