Hello bees! So thankfully my transfer was successful, and I’m pregnant! I am currently taking the progesterone in oil injections, as well as estradiol everyday. I’m curious to know how long you were prescribed to take estradiol pills for? I’m currently 7w4d. Thanks in advance!

Congratulations! I’m a week behind you at 6+4 after a successful transfer. This was one of the questions I meant to ask at my last appointment but getting to see and hear the heartbeat was an amazing surprise and I forgot to ask. I go back this Friday for my last ultrasound at the IVF Center before graduating to my OBGYN so I will find out then!

My IVF coordinator said to expect to take progesterone and estradiol for the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. I plan on switching to the progesterone cream if my transfer is successful because that many shots sounds unbearable.

I took eustace and progesterone until 12w.

I took estradiol and PIO injections until 8 weeks, then stopped the estrogen altogether and swtiched to just endometrin suppositories for weeks 8-10, then nothing thereafter. The suppositories were awful, I would have preferred to keep going with the PIO shots (though my butt muscles were happy for the break!).

I had a fresh transfer and did not take estrogen at all.

congrats! I’m about a week ahead of you at 8w5d. When I graduated from my RE they gave me a wean down schedule for my meds. I’m on estrogen patches and pio, I reduce estrogen patches at 10 weeks and stop at 11 weeks, and I stay on pio until 12 weeks.
