Hi just wondering when people stopped taking estrogen and progesterone supplements after falling pregnant from a frozen embryo transfer. I’m scared to stop.

My clinic asked me to reduce by half week 11 of pregnancy (calculating from the first day of last period) and stop during week 12. I had my 12w scan booked 2-3 days after stopping the hormones and that was really reassuring. By week 12 your placenta will produce all hormones for you, don't worry. Follow the clinic's advice. Not having to take any pills, suppositories felt amazing!

Hi i was told to stop around 10 weeks but unfortunately i ended MC around 7 weeks, i think the idea is 10/11 weeks as by that time the placenta is formed and takes over x
