I talked with my RE yesterday about why she won't agree to RI's plan to add Letrozole to my FET. She said that she's concerned it will mess with my hormones and raise my estrogen level too much - she's concerned about endometriosis and adenomyosis growth. She said my ute looks really good right now and she doesn't want to add anything else to the mix that might alter that. She said one time a patient took herbs with estrogenic properties and it made her lining 'gooky' and it took them months to get it back to normal. I know that's just one example and isn't even the same thing, but I think in her mind she just doesn't want to take chances.
RI wants to use it because supposedly it was shown to help implantation in women with endo. So basically the exact opposite opinion. I'm not really sure who to believe. But I basically have three options: 1, cycle with RE without the Letrozole. 2, bring my frosties to RI and do the FET there. 3, cycle with RE but don't tell her I'm taking Letrozole.
I think I'm leaning towards 1. I don't really feel comfortable leaving and trusting my frosties to the random clinic that RI works with. I think I'm a bit jaded by RI since the IVIG last cycle did not work. In a way I trust RE more even though she is conservative; although maybe I should be taking chances at this point... I also don't think it's a smart idea to take a hormone and not tell her, since that could alter my levels.
Will I regret not doing the Letrozole? Not sure, but given my uneasy feelings about RI right now and thus wanting to stay with RE, I don't think I have a choice.
RI is also planning to prescribe Neupogen, which will be ok with RE since it's not a hormone.
