    Caesardust, I only had pregnyl last cycle and it was enough to kickstart my natural progesterone production. maybe you make enough on your own from the levels in previous BTs. that cycle did work for a short time so I think it'll be fine

    Tahli, sorry to hear about your pup. I hope he's on the mend soon

    @Tahli - that is tough with your furry boy. They are so precious too. Our cat has something similar to IBD that we've been managing with pred for about 2 years. Medicating a cat can be tough too - much easier to whack a needle into oneself! They've warned us that a lymphoma could develop at any time. She is doing pretty well, but also has thyroid and renal issues. She's almost 18 and is a bit fragile these days. She is with a specialist vet who has been quite upfront with us that the next serious condition she develops will probably be it. At this time she has a good quality of life - we don't now how we'd get through IVF heartaches without her. I imagine given you lad's age and if he is otherwise in good health you want to do all you can, but with IVF costs that is a huge burden. I know I recoiled at our $350 vet bill on Monday, so cannot imagine finding thousands right now.

    I've never done a FET, but I thought you didn't need progesterone (unless you have lining issues?). You only need it with fresh because all the stim drugs bugger up your body's natural responses - e.g. to produce progesterone? I thought that is why PBS doesn't cover Crinone etc for FETs... So much uncertainty.

    @Gagingi it sort if depends if you are doing natural or medicated on my medicated fet i need it as the progynova shuts off your bodys natural cycle so you dont ovulate etc.

    I think you do need it for a FET if it was a suppressed cycle (you don't ovulate), as it's the corpus luteum that produces the progesterone. Or that's what my OB told me, my progesterone took ages to kick in. But I'm sure they know what they're doing, and would have you on it if you needed it x

    Try not stress @Caesardust, I only had pregnyl and got my BFP. They just told me to use up the box and then stop, i didn't have many left. I think they check your levels when you get your blood tests done.

    That makes sense now. My other 2 fet were fully medicated however this one I was stimulated slightly and was triggered to ovulate. I'm still taking progynova and oestradot and apparently my progesterone levels were quite high in the past.

    Thanks ladies. I panicked a little then and questioned my memory of the nurse telling me I don't need progesterone this time x

    Absolutely and utterly DON'T stress @Caesardust. I'm sure your FS knows what he/she is doing!! And I'm sure you've done absolutely nothing wrong at all. I'm really really sorry I asked about progesterone support. Please forgive me. SORRY!!!

    @Tahli don't worry at all. I honestly feel like this cycle I've taken so much that I'm questioning myself constantly. I'm surprised I remember to do anything else on top of ivf tbh. I must admit most things have gone out the window like makeup, hair, hair removal and shopping.
