    Holy IM shots! They have me taking estrogen on Mon an Thurs and then adding PIO sometimes 2x day. Anyone know if the estrogen and PIO can be mixed? That's a lot of shots. Add the lupron sub q and OUCH! Plus progesterone suppositories I think after FET.

    It looks confusing and more involved than a fresh cycle.

    SHG is on Wed and I am so paranoid that I'm gonna have a polyp. I don't even wanna think about what I will do if I have one. I'm super worried.

    Hope everyone's having a good weekend!

    Yeah for a calendar Sarah! When do they anticipate ET? I have been doing estrogen IM nightly since 1/3 and will continue through beta and maybe even after. The dose has been increased every few days and tomorrow, I should be adding PIO but will know after I see RE. I'm hoping tonight is my last dose of Lupron.

    Good luck with your SHG-I'll be praying everything looks good and you can move forward. Keep us posted.

    Janet, they estimated ET to be Friday March 4th. They always do FET on a Friday, which works great for me! Seems like a lot longer process than I expected. I'm sure it will go by fast after I start everything. Just gotta get through the SHG first to make sure I'll be a go.

    No clue on whether you can mix the meds or not...I only had pill estrogen for my FET's, so don't know about that. I'm sure it just sounds like a lot, but once you get the first day or two down, it won't be so bad.
    Good luck no the SHG (can't tell you not to worry, lol) AND on your FET!

    Lol, that's why I didn't post at all last week (you guys didn't need that mood, lol).
    Just a hunch, but I would think that you can't mix the estro and the progest (just thinking if the progest is in oil and the estro isn't, that it wouldn't mix).....can't hurt to ask though (always nice to save a bruise if you can :)).

    I don't think you should mix the PIO with anything. I think it would be a bad idea.

    Goodness! That is a lot! I would think that you shouldn't mix them but it can't hurt to ask. Progesterone suppositories are definitely easier (I had to do suppositories the first trimester with my second daughter) but messy and itchy (sorry TMI). I had to do PIO weekly during the third trimester. I am dreading daily....OUCH!

    You had your HSG on Wed? How did it go?
