Response to please, please help! Protocol roll-call
On the 5th day after stopping BCPs, I started the estrogen shots, Delestrogen 20mg/ml (they come in 3 different concentrations, 20mg/ml was the one I was prescribed). I injected 0.2 ml twice a week, on Thursday and Sunday nights.
So I took a shot on Thursday, then Sunday, then went in for monitoring the following Thursday morning. I had only taken 2 shots by then (next one was due that evening), and my lining was already 10 TL and E2 was 770.
One week later, my lining was roughly the same but E2 went up to over 1000.
I stayed at 0.2ml of the delestrogen per shot, but they would have increased it if my lining wasn't responding as well. Apparently it is typical to increase it but I was a little unusual in that regard.
I was successful on that cycle with a transfer of 1 blast. Hope that helps!
