Just got the FET plan... — The Bump
Infertility Veterans

Just got the FET plan...

I finally got the call early this evening with my instructions for the FET. I'm no expert with the numbers, but she said that my levels were as follows and that we were set for a Sunday transfer:

Estradiol: 205
Progesterone: 0.4
LH: 8
FSH: 3
Lining: 14


I am going to continue taking three Estrace orally each day, but I can stop taking the vaginal dose. I have to start my PIO tomorrow (yikes!) once per day, then progesterone suppositories in the morning and evening. I am also starting the oral antibiotics and steroids tomorrow. The embryologist is also supposed to call tomorrow with some information about our embies! I can't believe we are back in the game!

    I thought that was a lot, too. I'm taking twice as much as with IVF 1 and triple as much as the diagnostic cycle. Jeez!

    do you have a severe prog deficiency or something?  I'd be double checking.  And way to go on a nice thick linning, btw.

  • Great news!  Sending lots of good luck your way and keeping everything crossed for you!

    Another major needle-phobe here (we're talking routine fainting from blood draws and boosters prior to starting IVF) and I found PIO wasn't too bad.  Even had to do it myself a few times...definitely not the greatest thing, but certainly doable.  You've got this!

    8/2012: IVF/ICSI #3 EPP/MDLF (7R, 2M, 1F) = BFN

    12/2012: (New RE) Operative hysteroscopy to remove scar tissue

    1/2013: IVF/ICSI #4 Low-dose stim/Antagonist (AFC=6); ER=1/26 (5R-couldn't access rt ovary, 5M, 4F), ET=1/29 (trans 3) = BFP!; 2/11 beta#1(13dp3dt)=2127, 2/13=3367; twin girls due 10/19/13

    PAIF/SAIF very welcome!
