@Tahli yeah, I've taken provera to bring on a bleed. I took it for seven days then stop and three days later I'd get a bleed.
@Tahli, my two cents for what it's worth....
I really think you need to have a word to a FS - yours or someone else's - about where you're at.
The lovely ladies on this thread (myself included) have all had experience with various meds but at the end of the day none of us are Doctors, and your precious embies are so very valuable.....
I know you're disappointed - we are all disappointed for you. But now's not the time to rush in and start designing your own cycle. You've been on a LOT of meds and there is only so much the body can bare before they start to turn against you.
The gorgeous girls here have given you some great advice but at the end of the day I really think this is something your FS should at least be involved in. I know there's big money at stake so it's not lost on me how important this is, but at the same time I'd hate to think that potentially those 3 lovely embies could find themselves being placed into a less than ideal environment.
I hope my words don't cause offence. We all want so badly for this to work for you but my gut says you probably need professional guidance from someone on this one
yes pls check with a FS for your plan. I don't know how it or others react with what you've been on already for this cycle. as I've never done immune protocol or medicated fet. (& am coming off a 67hr work week so brain is fried atm for accurate dates). sept isn't far away either, as an option. you'd get a break to reset after all these meds first then?
Hi @Tahli I'm so sorry to hear about your cancelled cycle and I'm inclined to agree with the other ladies about not rushing in to your next FET and giving your body a rest from the drugs. I am wondering if you've ever tried acupuncture. I went to an acupuncturist who specialised in fertility treatment for years while I was doing IVF and she completely regulated my almost non existent menstrual cycle (I had only ever had 2-3 periods a years since puberty) and although I never had lining issues I know she successfully worked with ladies who did. The acupuncture can unblock blockages with blood flow and improve flow to the ovaries and uterus etc... if you think of a stream that gets clogged up with branches and debris it can impede water flow - I always thought of the acupuncture clearing away the 'branches and debris' that might be compromising blood flow to a particular area. When acupuncture is used in conjunction with Chinese herbs it can be powerful stuff - but it generally takes a few months of treatment before you start to reap the benefits so it might be another good reason to hold off your next FET... the trick is finding a really good acupuncturist though. Anyway, I just thought I'd put that out there as something else you could throw into the mix. Take care, FFxx

@Tahli I hope you are ok..it really is a sh!tty situation and I wish it wasn't happening. I too think you need to talk with one of the Drs in CT to discuss what needs to happen for another shot. @Charlie74 had a good point the other day about whether all the extra oestrogen/other meds actually hinder rather than help? It may be just one of those crap cycles vs good ones as I know that well, but given that you have had good lining numbers previously could it be worth trying a less full on approach? You are on a huge number of drugs and all of that may just be overloading your system and it cant cope. I don't want to harp on about less drugs, I just wonder whether its worth asking about.
The acupuncture sounds good too, it may just be worth trying some less invasive things to help with blood flow potentially.
I think @Blossom74 has wise words. Big hugs

Tahli for one of my DE cycles and I wouldn't recommend it. I did get AF 5 days after taking it but then got AF AGAIN just before I was about to leave to CPT while on synarel and I was in terrible pain...I honestly think it ****ed with my hormones too much.
