The Itchy and Scratchy Show

Woke up this morning with a really ugly, really uncomfortable rash all over my right hip, where we'd done the PIO shots. It itches terribly and kind of hurts, too (picture a mosquito bite the size of your hand, and that's about what it's like). I have a call in to the clinic, but don't expect to hear back until Monday. In the meantime, of course, I'm fretting. It just seems so odd that my body would wait until four days after my last shot to all of a sudden start reacting.

Also (TMI alert!!!!), no period yet. I know I'm not pregnant, and as I mentioned before, I haven't taken any progesterone since Tuesday, so once again, I worry.

Sadly, Dr. Google has been virtually useless to me regarding both of the above issues, so any input from the peanut gallery would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to hear about the rash! As for no period, it would sometimes take my body a few days before the period would start after a failed IUI with progesterone suppositories. Even if you aren't doing the PIO injections, you ovaries may still be producing progesterone - since that is was they are made to do after ovulation. That's my theory. Hope the rash clears up!
