We went to the RE to have my progesterone level checked yesterday. When the nurse asked which arm I wanted her to take the blood from, I responded by rolling up my left sleeve and suggested she put it right in the middle of last week's bruise. I bruise easily, and it is really annoying! She put a hot pink bandaid on my arm and told me that they would only call if there was a reason to be concerned. If my progesterone was low I would be put on suppositories. I have heard so many fun things about this, but not nearly as many horror stories as I have heard about PIO shots.
