    Thanks, nicole83 and kylie764 for answering my questions. Happy to know that there are doctors who prescribe the supplements even if we aren't undergoing IVF. Will try to get an appointment with him if we can. Thanks again

    There are also progesterone injections., but I had a reaction to these.. So only pessaries for me. Many women have daily injections of progesterone after FET or in case of low progesterone.

    I Know this is an old post but wondering if I can pick your brains? I'm also on pg pessaries for natural pregnancy. What dose of pessary were you on? Did you get levels checked regularly and what level was Wazza happy with? Thank you

    @Faith750 goodness knows how i ended up wandering around in here but i saw your post and thought i could add, i think differently fs prescribe different amounts. E.g. 1 specialist i had prescribed crinone which is 80mg per day, j had another that prescribed 600mg per day. I never had my levels checked but they can do this with simple blood tests. Wazza likes progesterone over 30. Hope that helps.

    Hi @gorgeousgeorge congrats on your pregnancy!! I've been through a few threads and read your good news! I'm about 10 1/2 weeks now and feeling positive and nervous at the same time. I've sorted the progesterone which I'll stay on until 12 weeks then wean off. My levels were good and no longer need monitoring. Ps do you have high nk cells, if so then what is your your immune protocol? I'm just a bit confused with advice given by different docs on when to wean off the pred, I don't want to take it unnecessarily but I don't want to stop too early either. Best wishes

    @Faith750 hi lovely, thanks for your congratulations xox congrats on 10.5 weeks, i dont think the nerves ever go away! Ive never had my nk cells tested but my fs in aus always gave me prednisolone and clexane for all cycles as it cant hurt and might help. And as i had unsuccessfully transferred 4 donor egg embryos and was about to go back for a 3rd oseas donor cycle he said i could do intralipids coz i was one pretty sad case. But this successful transfer i also used donor sperm to make the embryos so to be honest i think thats what probably did the trick this time. But you never know? Yeah i know what you mean about the different protocols and advice, i was the same with when to stop intralipids. Im only 7 weeks so i havent really looked into it. I dont have recurrent miscarriage so i think im going to follow the 12 week weaning advice too. I think but havent researched placenta/bubs should be ok. I do trust my main australian fs so I'll probably just do what he says seeing as i think its more likely there was dome undiagnosable issue with dhs sperm. If i find anything out I'll let u know and id be interested to hear what advice you get and what your plan is too. Good luck with everything!

    Hi hun,

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I'm so happy with you seeing all that you have gone through you deserve this hun! I would tend to agree that it seems something to do with the sperm coz that is what was different this cycle, or maybe could be something to do with HLA matching between your husbands sperm and the egg donor. I suppose because it's hard to pinpoint the exact cause FS tend to treat all possible issues, which I think is fair enough! Yes the bondi protocol does wean pred at 12 weeks, but I'll get Dr M's advice and let you know. Your FS seems to be quite good. I did call mother safe about use of pred in pregnancy and they said that no adverse signals were detected in terms of fetal safety. Fingers crossed hun
