Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Progesterone is vital after ET, for supporting the growing pregnancy in case you do conceive.
Also, after using the progesterone capsules vaginally, some amount of white discharge is common.
This in fact indicates that the capsule is working , because it melts ( dissolves ) and gets absorbed in the vagina.
So please do not worry.
Your concern is unfounded.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
