2019 has got off to a good start – I started a new job and our next ERA test prep cycle on the same day (3 Jan), and so far both are going well!
This time around I am taking 6mg of estrogen orally alongside using 2 patches and the lining is growing although, of course, progress is slow. I am having to go for a progress scan every few days and each time I have to go in my lunch break to do a blood test so the doctor has it ready when I go after work for my scan.
My lining has got to 5mm – which is way lower than the 7mm normally required for an embryo transfer to go ahead but, considering that this is the max it grew to last time (back in 2016) the Dr D (Dr S’s assistant) has decided that we will go ahead to biopsy even if it doesn’t grow much more from here. So tomorrow I will be adding progesterone to the mix – via vaginal suppositories! I have heard this can be pretty messy but hopefully it won’t be too bad. We’ll see how it goes!
