I have not tried pio because I don’t need them,my problem is not the lining or progesterone,i respond great to the drugs.My doctor believes that vaginal progesterone is what matters bcs we need that to keep the cervix nice and closed.Thank you for suggesting!
Also progesterone doesn’t increase the lining only stabilizes the lining for implantation.After we add progesterone our lining shouldn’t change.

I start stims tomorrow!:-) Everything came got delivered on Tuesday, and we have to take all of it with us to the doctors appt for bloodwork and ultrasound on Friday, meds start Friday night:-) I'm getting so excited and nervous!! Last day without medication.... also they sent some kind of vaginal suppository, an antibiotic, and methylpednisolone(a steroid) lol I wasn't expecting any of those... I guess they will explain it all on friday??
Wishing, your transfer is coming soon too right?? How are you feeling? Fxing for you

Vaginal suppository is most likely the progesterone Wich you will start once u have ur retrieval
Or when ur lining is nice and thick.the steroid is to help fight inflammation and ur body not rejecting the embryos.Teh antibiotics most likely after ur retrieval to prevent an infection.hugs!

Thanks Danaa!! This is feels a little overwhelming trying to learn all of this... hubs and I both panicked a little when we got our meds delivered trying to figure out how to organize everything, what has to be refrigerated, and lol what everything is lol!!

So exited for you bella, dont worry you will be a pro in no time. Sending lots of good pisitive vibes your way. Grow follicle grow!!
As for me on day 3 of progesteron and added progesteron in oil yesterday awiii i hit a vein grrr. I woke up this morning feeling inflamed and full down their. I put a heating pad with Castro oil to see if it help. Im so not feeling good about this cycle. I called the office yesterday and ask not to thaw my embies until he double check to make sure i have no fluid and it look good. Praying to God this work for me. What a journey. Will also get a pineapples and start munching on it to see if it help. What else can i try?
Hope to see some update from you all ladies.
Lots of baby dust sending your way

Hi everyone. I'm in the process of undergoing an FET with donor eggs and donor sperm (I'm older and DH has MFI). I went in for my baseline scan last Monday also they took bloods and started estradiol, Prednisone, antibiotic and am going in Monday for lining check and more bloods. I'm nervous because this is a lot of money we're spending (our insurance sucks lol) and praying that we will have a successful embryo(s) to transfer. Would love company along the way from people going through the same thing.
