When to stop support meds after a successful FET?

We have been really lucky on our recent FET and I'm currently 9 week pregnant. My clinic are adamant that I can stop all support meds at 10 weeks. Does this sound right to people? Last time around I was told to keep taking everything until 12 weeks and then wean off gradually.

Meds I'm currently taking:
Lentogest IM every other day
Prednisolone (obvs this one needs a slow wean)

Stopping the support medicines is so scary as I've had several miscarriages; the oldest being 12 and 14 weeks

My sil was 12 weeks too. The pessary one was the last one she stopped at 14 or 14 weeks. I remember because it coincided with my wedding and she was a snotty mess in the bogs worrying over it at my reception

I had to take mine for 49 days after FET, so that's about 9/10 weeks isn't it? I was anxious about stopping them but it was fine and now I'm nearly 22 weeks and being kicked! star

That's reassuring to hear thanks. It's really frustrating that it's hard to find any evidence for the benefits of different protocols. So much with IVF seems to be personal choices by clinics!
