    FET questions-E2 levels

    jbird823 posted:
    For those that have done FET before, do you know what your E2 levels were? CD 3 (12/31) it was 21 and today it was 1400. I'm on stimulation day 6. Have been on Lupron since 12/20. What is the purpose of E2 during FET? I thought the E2 correlated with follicle size and since I'm being suppressed, is the E2 working on my lining? If it is, my lining is looking good at 5.3 and triple striped which is soooo much better than my fresh at 6.3 at ET. I am to continue delestrogen .4cc and increase to .6cc on Monday and go back on Wed 1/12 for labs and u/s. Start PIO on 1/16 and ET scheduled for 1/20. Trying to remain hopeful that this cycle works as it is our last attempt. Praying lining is optimal and our 2 embies make it thru the thaw on transfer day!
    Looking forward to doing our taxes this year-lots of medical expenses for our fresh and one payment made on 12/31 for our FET. Crazy how much this all costs without insurance but thankful we were able to try

    My understanding is that E2 helps the eggs grow and also is what helps your lining to develop.

    My levels were 40; 2,458; and 2,548 for my FET

    Sorry, was looking at the wrong thing. Those were my fresh E2 levels. My FET levels were <20; and 1,749. It was taken again 2 days after ET and was 495
