For FET #1 we have a slightly different protocol and I'm curious about your experiences (this is for anyone who has used these drugs). I have PIO shots like last time in tandem with capsuls, and I believe I only use these after transfer. I have estrodol thought this time. It's new to me. Now here is a stupid question that I'll only admit to the blogosphere group - is this vaginal or oral? It's in the same little baggy as the progesterone suppositories but the label on the estrodol just says 'take as directed'. The progesterone specifically says "vag. suppositories". So, those of you who have used estrodol, um.. where do I shove it? And along with that, what is the purpose of it? Is that the one that is supposed to 'enrich my lining'?
And yes, I know my Doctor will explain it to me (well, his nurses will anyway) but I'm just wondering what to expect. I am through with BCP on Sunday! Here it comes!

I took my estradiol orally...hopefully you can too;O

You can take estradiol orally or vaginal. If it is not a pill, you have to shove it up in there...LOL This will help your lining get thicker. I have been on the patches.

I hope it works out for you. I will have my FET wednesday. Praying that we both get our BFP

I took estradiol injections because I hated the patches they gave me. It hurt worse pulling those darn patches off after two days than giving myself a shot. It's used to thicken the lining. :)

Praying girl!

Mine was patches... if you have questions always call your clinic/nurse. it's better to be the pesky patient (and you're paying for it!) then miss something.
