Hi,
Please tell me about your medication pre/ante/post frozen transfer.
Thanks!

Hello! I'm doing an FET on my natural cycle and am taking the usual folic acid, then the Ovitrelle jab to get ready, and Lubion for the progesterone I'll need (as Cyclogest doesn't absorb properly into me). This is round 5 for us and the first ever FET (we've also never done it on a natural cycle)...I've never had so few drugs before!

Do you have a cycle planned?

I started with Buserelin on cd 21, then Evorel patches after baseline scan, then lubion and Cyclogest once lining was looking good.

@LillyLeaf, so you took both Lubion and Cyclogest? Had you had problems not getting enough before, or was that just standard? I've asked my clinic whether I should be doing both but not really got an answer. Didn't push it as assumed I was just switching one for the other. Thanks for any info smile

I think they gave me both as I had previously had a miscarriage. They even increased both lubion and Cyclogest after I got a BFP due to bloods results saying progesterone was a bit low. I think I was on 2 lubion and 3 Cyclogest a day (I still miscarried). Are you self funded or NHS? Lubion is expensive so the NHS might not like prescribing it.

Oh I’m sorry, that’s rough. I’m self funded (NHS wouldn’t touch us with a barge pole as my AMH is so low), had heard Lubion was pricey as I did Prontogest last time, despite the horrible long needles, to keep the cost down! Thanks for sharing.

@Pleaseletitbeme sorry for hijacking your thread, hope you get lots of responses and the info you’re after smile

I take pregnacare and 200mg coq10 every day and have done for about 3 years. For my fet I started 6mg a day of progynova. Then added estrogen 100 patches. Started 800mg progesterone pessaries a day 5 days before transfer. Had transfer last Thursday and have continued all the above.
