FET with no lupron?

Postby mmmoore » Mon Apr 20, 2015 4:24 pm

Hey girls!

Got my meds for my FET. I have estradiol, endometrin (progesterone vaginal inserts) and progesterone in oil. No Lupron or BC. Is this normal? Has anyone had this type of protocol?

If so, how long was the process?

Thanks!!!

Hi,

I have done 4 FETs and I have never had any suppression (lucrin or bcp) for those cycles. Only for fresh. They watch (should!) you very closely and as soon as Your LH is on the rise they will trigger you. FET are amazingly easy and simple compared to fresh cycles, reason why I think so many FET are successful. I have generally been triggered to ovulate between days 12-16 thus still a 4 week process, does depend on how your hormones react to drugs etc. My hormonal level have never been an issue so others could have different experiences???

Good luck and enjoy the less meds

I think it just depends on your clinic. I did not do natural cycle FET (which is when they just monitor you for ovulation). I did 14 days BCP with Lupron overlay and now Lupron plus Estrogen patches. I will start progesterone inserts when my lining is a little thicker (was at 5mm today). One thing I have learned in IVF/FET process is that every single process is different!

Roar - what a process you have been through my dear. I hope that this is your cycle. HUGS

Thanks guys! Talked to RE today (because I am just confused) and she said that it will be a 60 day process. Just doesn't seem I have enough to meds but that is a good thing!!! Starting to get a little antsy, because I was suppose to start the FET right after my IVF freeze all but my period started way earlier that expected. So waiting one more month then jumping in! Waiting stinks!!

Karen hope your FET is going well! Roar rooting for you during your IVF cycle!

I've done 2 FETs with no lupron. My RE does bcp but other than that I had estradial & PIO. Both cycles were successful but our first ended in miscarriage. Best of luck!!

I've done 2 FET's and no lupron or BC for me either. I took estradiol (all the way to 12 weeks if pregnancy occurred) and progesterone oil injections (all the way to 12 weeks if pregnancy occurred)

FET was significantly less stressful on my body and with the help of a good pill box I ensured I never missed a dose! :)

Best of luck and warm thoughts your way! :)
