Vivelle vs Estrace after FET?

Hi Ladies,

My second beta came back at 977 13dp6dt. I'm hating the Vivelle dot and I'm running out of places to put it that aren't red. I asked my doctor about Estrace. He doesn't prefer it but said I could switch. If you had a FET, what are you using? TIA

    @gr8te I am on the generic Vivelle. I'm 16dp5dt and I was told to stay on estrogen for now. I'm not sure when they'll have me stop, but I do know my insurance is about to cap my Vivelle order.

  • @gr8te Not at all. At first I thought it was less sticky than the Minivelle, but it was user error haha.
