Can you tell me these meds what are called in US/ Canada?
Proginova, Prometrium, Clexane, Decapeptyl-depo, Medrol.
I think prometrium and medrol are the same in here too. Will you please remind me what was called the estrace injection, was it progynova.
Are the quality of the meds the same Europe or here. Is one stronger than the other?
Thanks

Progynova is Estrace 2 mg
Prometrium is progesterone suppository normally 400 mg for DE IVF Cycle (we use cyclogest here, promentrium is in Australia, Crinine Gel 8% can be used in USA)
Clexane is Lovenox or Heparin
The depot is Lupron depot or Depot Lucrin 3.75 mg

Medrol - not sure - don't use that.

days just before embryo transfer in order to 'quieten' your immune system and therefore stabilise the uterine environment for embryo transfer and potential implantation.

Most ivf clinics in the US use it for about 5 days only. However, if you are diagnosed with any autoimmune issues, it may be necessary to take througout pregnancy. This needs to be determined by a doctor obv.

I always appreciate your insight. I sent an email to my clinic requesting to be on the bcp, and not stopping and then starting. No one answered me.
