Does anyone's clinic do this, have them take medrol 16 mg for 7 days starting 6 days before transfer? Without tapering just stop it? thought it had to be tapered to be safe to stop. I see a lot of clinics use 4 days but mine is saying 7 days.

Many docs use it that way. It's safe for that little time not to do a taper. It's called a Medrol pack and many docs give it to patients who have illness that needs steroid. I just took a seven day pack for a URI. No taper needed for such a short amt of time.
My doc gave me prednisone for 10 weeks when I conceived with no taper. Go ahead and use it without worrying.
