I've done all sorts of P4 support across a bunch of cycles

Endometrin, Crinone, vag supps, PIO, Prometrium.
My preference is no PIO. The shots weren't terrible but, for one, I didn't give them to myself (DH did) so I would hate to have to rely on him for my daily scheduled shot over the course of 2.5 months. I also didn't like the post-PIO itchies and welts that I had after I stopped using altogether. And I just recently discovered that I have tiny little dot marks on my backside from where DH was giving me the shots - and the last was from back in August! Lastly, in my case it wouldn't matter what I wanted, because my clinic (Cooper) strongly prefers vag support because it goes directly to the uterus. They reserve PIO usage for frozen cycles.
