Pop Star

I've read enough about the infamous "Pussy Pops" to know that progesterone pessaries are not particularly pleasant. With this prior knowledge I was in no hurry to get up close & personal with my first "Pop".
I started yesterday.
Hmmmm. The panty mess is not the worst facet, so far that is actually quite tolerable. It's unwrapping the little fuckers that is causing me far more grief! And the laying down for half an hour after each insertion.
The evening dose is a breeze. Eg: "Honey, I CAN'T do the dishes because the doctor said I HAVE to lay down for 30 minutes after each pussy pop. Yes! That's what they're called. Bring me a drink. And a straw."
But the morning deal is a d-r-a-g.
You mean I have to get up 30 minutes earlier each morning just so I can "Pop" and then go lie down again before I go to work? Wha?
I love my sleep..........setting the alarm even 30 seconds early is enough to make me pout/whine. Oh the things we endure!

FET is scheduled for Friday. I've got Friday on my mind.

BTW. Thanks for your encouragement after my last post. Yay Team!

That's come quickly! i will be thinking of you also. Have put a reminder on my phone "Mrs Negative - FET" so I can say a prayer - if that's okay with you.

Your post made me laugh. I'm with you on the setting the alarm earlier front. Good luck with your FET on Friday!

Doesn't sound like much fun, although I would love it if your Hubby had to go pick up some more for you - imagine him asking for "you know the pussy pops, P-U-S-S-Y P-O-P-S"

very best of luck with your FET on Friday.

Friday on the mind indeed... I'm enthusiastically cheering for you. Jumping up and down, waving my arms in the air, hoping beyond hope you score one (or three) for the team.

They are horrible aren't they...I used to have trouble opening them too and then the wax would start melting in my fingers while I was franticly trying to peel the foil off....roll on Friday!

I'm waiting for Friday with you! Fingers crossed.
I have to put those bullets up my bum. No pussy pops for me, I call them bum bullets! Tasteful huh?

Oh Mony! I'm so hopeful for you and this cycle. I wish I could do more. Know that I'm thinking of you and sending you lots and lots of positive vibes.

Hey Mony
Oh yeah I loathe the pussy pops - as you call them - :). I once wore pants made of thin fabric to work...needless to say the end result was quite messy and embarrassing.
Hang in there due.

Got my fingers crossed for you. You know I have to say, I liked the PIO injections better than the pussy pops. Although to be fair, I never got a bruise or a sore so I think I had a very positive experience with the PIO.

Fingers crossed, as always, sweetie! You know, I never had any mess issues with the progesterone suppositories at all. I mean, I did have gross spitwad-like discharge because of them, but it was all contained and only came out on toilet paper, never my panties. Hmmm. Just my observation. :-)
