My last AF was a year ago and my RE is starting me on 4 mg twice a day for a mock cycle. (I hope to do it for real in March.) That seems high. Is it because the last time I cycled I was still fairly regular? Did anyone else take this much? I'm supposed to start today.

Sorry. That wasn't clear. Not for hot flashes or anything like that.

And took 2 mg/4x day. Originally, the doctor had me on 2 mg 3x/day, but I unexpectedly started AF the day I started estrogens, so he upped my dosage to try to make sure my lining was good by ET day. Lining was great, so he kept me on that dosage for cycle 2 (success). So, same daily dosage, just different timing. It's not really that much for some of the ladies here who have had lining issues. Take care, Maggie (in VA)
