Quoting [Mrs. C]:" Thank you so much ladies! Amelia- I just read your bio. You're a very strong woman for all that you've ... [snip!] ... does monitoring work? Trying not to even think about that yet, but it'd be good to have a heads up on what to expect. Thanks!"
Thank you so much. Just doin' what I gotta do, kwim?
Drugs are pretty much the same as with a fresh cycle, minus the stims. For FETs I start with BCP at CD 1 which continue for about 2-3 weeks, depending on my RE's schedule. I then take Lupron for a few weeks and at some point begin estradiol as well. About a week before transfer I stop Lupron and start progesterone injections. As for monitoring, I have three ultrasounds - a baseline and then two suppression checks. My ovaries are AWESOME at being lazy-ass chumps, so suppression has never been an issue for me. Others might require additional scans/blood work.
is one of my old calendars.
ETA forgot that somewhere in there are oral steroids, antibiotics, baby aspirin, and valium for the transfer.
