Hello Donor Egg Peoples,
I would like to ask a favor. Would you mind leaving me a comment with your protocol? I am curious about what is typical for other people in the DE IVF world, for fresh and frozen cycles. I am feeling really sad after my failed fresh DE IVF, but want to give my frozen DE IVF followup cycle the best possible chance. So, if you wouldn't mind sharing, I would love your input!
Here is the protocol I was on for the fresh cycle:
Lupron 10 units then 5 units once estrogen starts
Vivelle patches in a dizzying array of on-off designs that have left rectangles of adhesive still on my belly
Estrace 2x per day administered vaginally (hellooooo, pantiliners)
Once day of retrieval has happened, PIO injections in the morning with continued estrogen support
Three days before pregnancy test, 100mg progesterone suppositories
Baby aspirin throughout
Valium day of transfer, 45 minutes to 1 hour before procedure
For a frozen cycle, the patches are replaced with injectable Del Estrogen every three days, everything else stays the same.
Thanks for your help!
