Hi everyone:

Today is CD14 on estrsce 2mg trice daily and started Viagra suppositories a few days ago becaue I was nervous that on CD10 my lining was only 5. Now my estrogen level went down slightly and my lining is down to 4mm. Have been taking baby aspirin, omerga 3's vitamin E, exercise, tons of water, sex, E2 levels around 800 (down from 1000 cd10). We have not tried acupuncture because it was not in the budget but now I am desparate and have an appt tomorrow. RE said add extra vivelle dot x2 every other day and bump estrace to 3xday, continue viagra. I read an article that says if you do acu 4-5 days in a row, some have seen improvement. Also wondering about adding Mayan massage. Is that something I can learn on youtube without paying for it? I am looking it up! Also wondering if I can push the progesterone back a day or 2 to give me more time. If my lining was a 6, I would go ahead with the transfer and hope for the best. I just need 1 mm in 1 week. Was hoping for more but at this point I will take a 6.

I'd do 4 mg in morning then 2 mg in afternoon and 4 mg at night orally and 2 mg vaginally in morning and again at night. I just done this for a japan lady who had egg retrieval today and her lining increased to 7.8 in 3 days from 4.2

but I had great success with Del estrogen injections for my mock cycle, and I have seen that a lot of women on this board have. I have just begun a real cycle, so will be using Del estrogen in about a week, so I don't know what the result will be for my uterus this time around. Does your clinic ever use Del estrogen. I don't know if it would be wise to switch (I assume you are using the meds you are because the clinic believes they will work the best for you) at this point or if there is even time since the injection is only administered every 3 days. This might not have been helpful at all, but I know since we all want to have the best shot at a successful transfer, it's sometimes good to just be armed with as much info as possible, and to ask questions of your RE so she/he can figure out what is best for you.

Wishing you all the best and a lovely lining!

Encouraging to know someone has increased that quickly. It can't hurt so I think I will definitely try that protocol...I respect your opinion because I know you have given great advice to many people on this board. Will see how it goes!

Thanks for the wishes...I did try Delestrogen without a great response- before the vaginal estrace worked ok for me...I think I may need a higher dose

I think I will increase the dosage- I forgot to put in my post that I am doing it vaginally. Hope your cycle is going well also!

One more thing...you don't think I should increase the dose but do it all vaginally? My RE keeps saying how much better the absorption is..why do some orally and some vaginally? Thanks!!

vaginally and under the tongue. This seems to work better for me than just doing straight oral estrace. You could also increase the vaginal estrace
