Hi Ladies - I am doing an FET and my doctor is telling me to take 1 full cc of Delestrogen every three days. I have been Googling away and I haven't found anyone being prescribed this high a dose of Delestrogen. Usually, it is .2, .3,.4 ml., etc. I wonder how familiar the doctor is with this drug as I know they usually only prescribe Estrace. Any thoughts?

Yipes - that's a lot. Does your syringe even go that high? Our syringe for the delestrogen is marked differently from the PIO. My doses have been .2, .15, and .1 just twice a week - Yes, I would definitely double check with your physician.

Yes, I have asked them so many times that I think they are annoyed that I keep asking. Lol. I even brought the syringe and had the nurse demonstrate the dosage because I thought we must have had a communication breakdown - but no, they are telling me to take one full ML syringe every three days. I am not going to take this much because I think it is very bad advice. They are not even monitoring E2 levels until the lining check. Since we are doing a frozen cycle, we can always start over if we have to if lining doesn't build (but I sure hope that doesn't happen). Thanks for your responses ladies.

what my dosage was, but it sounds as though you don't have much confidence in this clinic, and that would bother me. I hope everything works out for you.

Hi I have been taking .8cc, twice a week. The Delestrogen is very important to keep uterine lining plush, for implantation. Do what they say, you have to much on the line. 1cc is not much difference from .8cc. I feel fine. I just had a problem with the 1 1/2 inch needle, but doing great with the 1 inch. Good luck
