    @Risa78 your correct the lining doesn’t grow anymore once you start progesterone, it actually shrinks a little as the progesterone changes the lining environment to receptive, you could do a scan on day 8 of estrogen and then another one on day 12 or just do a day10/12 lining scan, then that would give you an idea of how your lining is tracking, with zlin we did one on day 10 or 12 and with the Cyprus clinic they like one done on day 8 then day 12 of estrogen.

    @Risa78 Yep, I'm one of Wazza's lining girls. And yes, I took everything he could throw at me for lining including Trental and Nitrodur. Definitely scan before flying out. That way, if needed you can up everything not just Progynova.

    @Risa78 with all my attempts both fresh and frozen I always had my lining scan before I flew out. With wazza/Charlotte I’d have my lining scan around day 12/13 and then had transfer about 10 days later. That way I had another 3-4 days if I needed to increase lining thickness before I started progesterone. And yes you’re correct about the progesterone stopping/slowing lining growth. For my 5 attempts I never had any lining scans done at CFC. You must be getting soooooo excited!!
    @Eastereggs so sorry to hear about the negative results. I had to go with a second egg donor as first donor was unsuccessful. I’ve also done the double donor thing as I’m doing this solo so if you’ve got any questions I’m more than happy to answer.

    Thanks everyone!

    I might try to get a day 10 lining scan here before I fly out, just for peace of mind.
    @Tahli, thanks for confirming re Trental and Nitrodur. When did you stop taking them? I never got that far lol

    Hi everyone! Quick question... i’ve read all the advice to try to pick up all my progesterone in Cape Town to save some $$s. Thanks!

    The question is how much do I need and do I get both Gestone and Crinone? How did you work it out?

    Dr M here in Sydney is putting me on a high dose so starting on 1 x gestone and 1 x 400mg pessary a day (could sub for multiple crinone).

    Anyway keen to hear how many weeks supply you picked up (or needed).

    Hey @Risa78 the clinic in sa will be able to tell you how much you need :-) They will give you a prescription or if its over the counter, write down what you need to get and my advice would be to get one more packet/box than what they say just coz sometimes i found pessaries came back out if i didnt put it in high enough ir had to use loo 5 mins after inserting so good idea just to have a few extra imo. Lol i lost a packet, dropped down behind the bed and didnt find it till 2 weeks later. So yeah, dont worry they will work out how much andbwhat to ask for at the chemist and add 1 more just in case.

    Oh and if you do need to work it out yourself, you'll see on the box what strength and gow many in a box so just calculate for 12-13 weeks worth, if that makes sense.

    @Risa78 CFC will give you 35 ampoules included in your treatment plan which is only enough till the 6 week mark. From memory after that they say to switch to Crinone. (Someone correct me if I got it wrong). I just used gestone and progesterone pessaries as per Dr M plan. The first time I went I bought an extra 6 boxes (10 ampoules per box) and the second time I went 3 more boxes. Just as well I did as Dr M had me continue the gestone every second day after 14 weeks until 18 weeks. Just ask at reception to buy extra boxes. If you find you don't need them all you can always offload to someone on this forum who may need it.

    I got the standard 35 amps of Gestone and 3 boxes of Crinone. I had an extra box from IVF here so I was able to get to 12 weeks.

    My sister was able to purchase additional Gestone due to previous thrush with Crinone. The clinic supplied everything on site so it made it easier. Also cheaper there too. If everything works, there is always others on this forum that need additional meds. Goodluck xx
