  • Crinone (Vaginal Gel)
  • Endometrin (Vaginal Tablet)
  • Prometrium (Vaginal Capsule)

Progesterone is secreted by the corpus luteum after ovulation. In IVF it is given after the egg retrieval to help thicken the lining of the endometrium to prepare for implantation of the embryo transferred. It is also given during a frozen embryo transfer cycle to help thicken the lining in anticipation for the transfer and to keep the progesterone level elevated to prevent a bleed.
