    Default FET Protocol

    Hi everyone,

    I will be having an FET Cycle of a blast. In my last two FETs I have done a natural cycle, as I am by the book with my cycle and ovulation. They were BFNs. I was wondering if anyone here has tried a hormone replacement cycle, I've heard success rates are higher because they are "controlled". Any info about medicated cycle would be much appreciated.

    Mine have all been medicated. I read the latest Monash stats are a higher success rate for natural. Worth trying something different though

    Yep natural FETs at Monash have higher success rate. I've used pregnyl these last 2 FETs as luteal phase support. Tricks the body to thinking it's pregnant. Looks like it might have worked this cycle.

    I asked Lynn about this years ago and she wouldn't do it so glad they are doing it now.

    Dr Wazza did pregnyl in 2009 for my successful cycle.

    My successful cycle was a HRT FET, resulted in our DS. I will be commencing a HRT again soon to try for #2. My HRT cycle consists of taking progynova tabs 4 times a day. Once lining is right thickness I will have 6 days of intramuscular progesterone injections (proluton), then transfer and onto progesterone supps. I will also be on aspirin, clexane, prednisone and doxycycline.

    Kellbell was there a reason why you were on medicated? Or was it just your own choice.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    I have PCOS and my hormone levels are never at the right levels naturally to promote a pregnancy. I have also done FETs using gonal f with ovidrel trigger and pregnyl, but they weren't successful and I didn't respond well to them. The HRT cycle went really smoothly and had success, so are sticking with the recipe that worked!

    So akakura is the pregnyl used on the natural cycle? Did you do a natural cycle? My past natural cycles have been just two blood tests, astrix and prednisolone and progesterone pesessaries.

    I will be starting our last FET on the 3rd of next month. Lynn's already activated a natural cycle for me but I want to know if there's anything at all I can do differently in this cycle to make things work? They're ok with me switching to a medicated. One thing I do want to ask about is ultrasound to check the thickness of the uterus lining, didn't do that in the past with natural cycles they don't feel a need to but I think is of benefit and it can be arranged. I won't be able to see Lynn before starting this cycle so any new suggestions in the mean time would be greatly appreciated!

    As black and white as this sounds sometimes if an emby is going to stick its going to stick and nothing we do "tinkering around the edges" changes anything.
