Last try at IVF - estrogen priming protocol — The Bump
Secondary IF

Last try at IVF - estrogen priming protocol

Posting this here for anyone who may have experience with this protocol. I am doing an estrogen priming protocol.

Just started the cycle before. So after I surge during this cycle (10 days after) I begin a med I can't remember and estrogen patches.

I'll update with what it is when I find out again. I will be opk-ing this cycle to track when I surge to know when to begin the meds.

  • I really hope this works for you. Good Luck!
  • Hello!  This is what the doctor is trying to do for me right now as well...
    I went to get my blood drawn yesterday (CD17) and they said it showed I haven't ovulated yet this cycle.  They are bringing me back for bloodwork on Friday and then if that proves that I have ovulated I will start taking Estrodil (sorry- I think I am spelling that wrong) twice a day until I get my period.  Then I go back for BW and sonogram on CD2 so I can hopefully start the injections that night.  The reason they are using the Estrogen instead of the birth control pills for me is because I have been cancelled for 2 IVF cycles in a row and this should be a little faster and it avoids the BCP which really induces my anxiety.  Sorry, I can't give any further info because I haven't started it yet...

    Good luck!!!  I hope this works for you!

    Diagnosed with Severe Ashermans 
    Hysteroscopy #10 - scar tissue grew back reblocking my right tube
